Mother's protest over report into daughter's death
A mother from Pembrokeshire is holding a protest outside council offices in Haverfordwest calling for an independent review into her daughter's death. Seren Bernard, who was in the care of Pembrokeshire social services, was found dead in April 2012.
A mother whose teenage daughter was found dead while in the care of social services has been protesting outside the offices of Pembrokeshire Council.
Sarah Pollock is calling for "truth and transparency" over the death of 14-year-old Seren Bernard. She's says she's been denied access to a full report commissioned by the council into her daughter's death.
And today, she was joined by other families who also have complaints about the county's social services. Tom Sheldrick reports.
"We appreciate the deep emotion of Mrs Pollock as a bereaved parent.
"The independent reports that have been completed by external experts into the tragic loss of her daughter have concluded that it would remain uncertain as to whether there were any steps that, if taken, could have prevented her death.
"At present the matter is still before HM Coroner and it would be inappropriate to comment further."
