Baby P: Sharon Shoesmith to appeal against Haringey dismissal

Former Haringey Council director of children’s services Sharon Shoesmith has lodged an appeal against her sacking in the wake of the Baby P scandal.

The authority confirmed that Shoesmith was challenging its decision to sack her last month, which came a week after children’s secretary Ed Balls used statutory powers to remove her from the director’s post.

She was dismissed without compensation or payment in lieu of notice.
