SIR - The Commissioner's Report, and earlier Ofsted Report, on Children's Services made for disturbing reading, even more so when we learn that a third of Bradford Council's budget is spent on these services, and yet they are still not good enough (T&A, February 11).

We are then told that the contents of the reports came as a shock to Labour leader Susan Hinchcliffe and Chief Executive Kersten England. Really?

How either of them have the audacity to remain in office, having presided over one failing after another, is beyond me.

Pity the poor children who are involved in all this.
