A damning independent review has criticised the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust - and revealed that there were severe failings in the cases of ten people.
The review was launched after the conviction of Matthew Daley - who killed pensioner Donald Lock. He had stabbed him 39 times after a minor collision between their cars, near Worthing.
The interviewees in Malcolm Shaw's report are Joseph Goswell, whose father was one of the mental health patients mentioned in the review; and Colm Donaghy, the Chief Executive of the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

Meanwhile, the son of Roger Goswell, one of the patients involved, has also voiced his concerns about mental health care provision at the trust.

One was the case of Roger Goswell who murdered his wife Susan at their home in West Chiltington in 2007, before killing himself. His family say they pleaded with doctors to keep him in hospital.
