A young woman with cerebral palsy has lost her claim for damages in a test case against Derbyshire CC, The Guardian reported (16 July, p3).

Becky Walker, now aged 20 and a law student, sued her local education authority over alleged bullying at Bolsover school.

Judge Thomas Heald dismissed the case which, had it succeeded, would have opened the way for other victims of alleged bullying to take their cases to the courts, the paper reported.
