Ministers have actively been seeking 'community care success stories' by leaning on the nominally independent Social Services Inspectorate, the Guardian reports (p8).

The memo was leaked to local authority social services departments. The issue is to be referred by Labour to Sir Robin Butler, head of the Home Civil Service.
