Angry social workers demonstrate

Minister Rita Verdonk has told workers in the childcare services that she understands their problems but cannot promise them more money. Around 1,500 social workers demonstrated in Utrecht today to protest at the prosecution of a social worker for her role in the death of Savanna who was killed by her mother while under social service supervision.
