Jason Cooper, who spent nine years in the care of Derbyshire CC, has applied for legal aid to sue the council for failing to prepare him for adult life, The Observer reported (p6).

Mr Cooper attended the Red House School and was sent on eight foreign trips billed as character-building for problem children. He has since become a drug abuser and a criminal.

The school is run by the third world charity Humana. The Charity Commission has recently asked receivers to take the charity over.
