UK- A FOSTER mother hanged herself after three children were removed from her care by Doncaster social workers.
Denise Horsfield became depressed by the break-up of her foster family and, despite the intervention of psychiatric nurses, she believed her chances of adopting one of the children had gone for good.
The 52-year-old was found hanged in the garage of her Bessacarr home two days after the third child, a six-year-old girl, had been taken from the house.
Mrs Horsfield's husband, John, a retired prison officer, broke down several times as he told the Doncaster inquest how badly his wife was affected by the events leading up to her death on April 15. FULL STORY
