Boy C is going home

"For hours on end Boy C was stuck in a padded room, he wasn't locked in instead, staff clung to the door handle outside to stop him getting out. He repeatedly head butted the wall and tried to claw his way out. After four years of complaints from his family the case went to the High Court. A judge ruled that what went on was illegal, depriving the teenager of his liberty. Wigan council was the local authority which sent Boy C to Beech Tree School in Bamber Bridge and it was the charity Scope who were running it."
"Well, Chris, the `boy in the blue room` is finally going home on Monday after 10 years in various ATUs. Well done Lynne & Luke. True Ninjas who never gave up the fight." - Mark Neary
