Weston Mercury – September 04, 2017
New figures released by the NSPCC show the children’s charity has had to deal with more cases than ever before in North Somerset, with at least one report emanating from the district every week. The charity refers five cases of child neglect to police and social services in the area every month, with 59 cases reported in the past year. This represents a five-percent increase on last-year.
