Another day, another child abuse inquiry. As Northern Ireland investigates historic abuse in care homes, churches and other institutions, in England a string of reports look at how and why Jimmy Savile was allowed to roam free in schools and hospitals abusing children. There are also accusations this week that it's too easy for children to be taken from their parents and institutionalised by social services in the first place. One MP, John Hemming, has said that parents should go abroad rather than attend a family court where their children may be taken off them.
