The Good Law Project now hopes to raise £30,000 to pay for a leading law firm to “fight for justice for her family”, as well as to support other families in similar circumstances, and has already raised more than £1,000 in one day. Click here for more details.
Mala Thapar shared: “This was an appalling situation to read about and in full admiration of the mother taking further action.
