What: Joy Dove, the mother of Jodey Whiting, says she will appeal against a court’s ruling that there should not be a second inquest into her daughter’s death. She says she refuses to accept that the first inquest in May 2017 was a “thorough investigation” into the role played by DWP in her daughter’s death. Her words come after the high court refused to quash the result of the first inquest and to order a second one. Dove says she has now applied for permission to appeal that decision.
Why significant: Another step in Joy Dove’s search for justice for her daughter.
