PROSTITUTES, shoplifters and even someone who assaulted a child have applied for jobs in schools in Nottinghamshire over the past three years.
Other crimes committed by those wanting to work with children include assaulting a police officer, growing cannabis and racially aggravated criminal damage.
The Post can reveal that Criminal Records Bureau checks flagged up the crimes of 779 people when they applied for positions in schools in the city and county since 2011.
This figure includes 164 convicted of thefts, 39 assaults, 33 instances of loitering for prostitution, and ten for soliciting prostitutes.
Doctors have diagnosed hundreds of patients in Wales with malnutrition over recent years, we can reveal, amid anger about soaring dependence on foodbanks.
The statistics show patients have even been treated for cases of “severe acute malnutrition” normally associated with the developing world.
Malnourished babies and children are among more than 1,200 malnutrition cases diagnosed since 2007/08 with rates in Wales’ worst affected area jumping by a staggering 1,400%.
Many of the 1,229 recorded cases have involved patients being admitted to hospital for treatment while the true tally is likely to be even higher after two health boards refused to provide data on diagnoses in response to our freedom of information request.
