Victoria Climbie inquiry forced to take on extra staff

The Victoria Climbie Inquiry has been forced to employ extra
staff to cope with the new material provided by Haringey council,
which is almost three times as much as originally believed.

Counsel for the inquiry Neil Garnham said that the 263 documents
handed over by Haringey on Monday were infact 263 categories of
documents comprising in excess of 630 individual documents.

Garnham said the new documents relevant to the next two
witnesses Angella Mairs and Petra Kitchman would be circulated to
all interested parties today.

Mairs, Lisa Arthurworrey’s supervisor, will give evidence to the
inquiry today (Friday), and will respond to allegations that she
removed pages from Victoria Climbie’s file after her death.

Kitchman, a social work supervisor at the north Tottenham
office, is due to appear before the inquiry on Monday.
