    Windrush scandal 'tip of iceberg' as other Commonwealth citizens targeted by hostile policies

    British citizens of Indian, Ghanaian and Pakistani descent have been hit by the government’s “hostile environment” immigration policy – forcing the Home Office’s Windrush scandal taskforce to step in, The Independent can reveal. In dozens of cases of alleged discrimination, people born in Commonwealth nations who have lived in the UK for decades have been left stranded abroad or threatened with deportation. Charities said growing numbers from outside the Caribbean had approached them in need of support with immigration issues – and warned that the Windrush fiasco was the “tip of the iceberg”.

    HMP Woodhill hit by 'damning' new report on response to record number of suicides

    The prison with the highest number of suicides in England and Wales is still suffering from a chronic staff shortage which leaves inmates locked in their cells for long periods, according to a new report. Over the last five years, a total of 19 men have taken their own lives at HMP Woodhill in Milton Keynes, including seven in 2016 alone. It concluded that Woodhill was “still not safe enough”, despite attempts to improve care in the wake of repeated criticism over the high number of self-inflicted deaths.

    Hannah Danielle might be an evil genius. The clever beagle found her way around a mildly electrically-charged ScatMat and scaled open drawers to hop on the kitchen counter. Hannah’s owner, Shelly, told Storyful, “One time she managed to pull the dog food bag under the pantry door and ate 7 pounds of dog food.” Shelly also said most recently that “she climbed on the bathroom counter, opened the medicine cabinet, took out a bottle of Ibuprofen, chewed off the lid, and ate 12 pills.” Credit: Shelly Hess via Storyful
