When Vine was still up and running I followed many of the popular “Viners”. King Bach, Logan Paul, Lele Pons, Cameron Dallas just to name a few. These were younger kids with such a high following. Their videos were 6 seconds long but always entertaining. I would begin watching and then 2 hours later realize […]

Children brought up in persistent poverty are at greater risk of mental health issues (Picture: Getty) One in five children in the UK experience poverty throughout their childhood, according to a new study. Those brought up in persistent poverty are at greater risk of mental health problems, obesity and long term illness. The number of children across the UK living in poverty continues to grow, prompting calls for a ‘renewed commitment’ from the Government to tackle the problem. While some children only experience poverty for part of their childhood, a fifth live with its effects until at least the age of 14. Researchers examined data for 10,652 children taking part in the Millennium Cohort Study, which tracks the different stages of the lives of children born between September 2000 and January 2002. Poverty was defied as living on under 60 per cent of UK average household income (Picture: Getty) Of the total group, 62.4 per cent of the children were never in poverty, 13.4 per cent went through it in early childhood and five per cent in late childhood. The study found 19.4 per cent of children lived a life of poverty from the day they were born until at least 14 years old. [metro-zone-post-thumbnail-link] Compared with the children who had never experienced poverty, those in persistent poverty were at three times greater risk of mental health problems, 1.5 times greater risk of obesity, and were almost twice as likely to suffer a long-standing illness. All participants were born in the UK and were assessed with surveys when they were nine months, three, five, seven, 11 and 14. Poverty was defined as having less than 60 per cent of average household income. The team, from the University of Liverpool and University College London Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, noted in 2016/17, 30 per cent (4.1 million) of all UK children were reported to be living in poverty, up from 27 per cent in 2010/11. The number of children living in poverty is continuing to climb (Picture: Getty) By 2023/24, the figure is expected to hit 37 per cent affecting an extra 1.1 million children. The researchers writing in the Archives of Disease in Childhood called for ‘a renewed commitment’ from the UK Government to prioritise ending child poverty. [metro-zone-post-thumbnail-link] They said health professionals are ‘well placed to argue that policies and services in the UK should fulfil our moral and legal responsibility to ensure that every child is able to achieve their full potential’ President of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health Professor Russell Viner said: ‘The impact of poverty on children can be devastating – not only to their physical health in terms of increased risk of malnutrition, respiratory problems from poor housing and infection – but also their mental health. ‘This latest research serves to highlight the importance of tackling poverty if the relatively poor outcomes for child health in the UK are to improve. Researchers say children are much more likely to become obese and develop long term illnesses (Picture: Getty) He suggested a national child poverty strategy including binding reduction targets and a reversal of government cuts as a solution. A Government spokeswoman said: ‘As the authors say, this report doesn’t establish a causal link between poverty and poor health. ‘UK households with children have a lower persistent poverty rate than the EU average including a rate lower than both France and Germany. ‘We want every child to have the best start in life, which is why our long term plan for the NHS, backed by an extra £33.9 billion a year by 2023/24, puts prevention at its heart. ‘We’re also spending £95 billion a year on working-age benefits and provide free school meals to more than one million of the country’s most disadvantaged children.’ [metro-tag-post-strip] [metro-fact-box id=”8027376″ title=”Got a story for” icon=”exclamation” /]

LAUREL, Miss. (AP) – A Mississippi man faces a new trial in the killing of his girlfriend’s 2-year-old daughter.    WDAM-TV reports the retrial of Justin Blakeney is set for September in Neshoba County.    Circuit Court Judge Dal Williamson approved attorneys’ request for the trial to be moved from Jones County, where Victoria Viner was killed in 2010. She was the daughter of Lidia Viner, Blakeney’s girlfriend at the time.    Jurors for his 2014 trial were chosen in Greene County and taken to Jones County. Blakeney was convicted of capital murder, sentenced to death and sent to prison.    In November 2017, the Mississippi Supreme Court ordered a new trial, ruling Blakeney was denied the opportunity to present a complete defense.    Since December 2017, he has been in protective custody at the Jones County jail.
