Much has been said in the media over the past 48 hours about a child who was battered by a three-year-old.
A tribunal has ruled that Jay (the injured child) qualifies for criminal injuries compensation sets a precedent because his assailant was too young to be prosecuted.
It appears both the children were left in a car, in which a car jack was easily accessible.
Surely it's not the taxpayer who should be paying the compensation but the car owner who was stupid enough to leave such an item inside the car and within easy reach of two small children. I'd go as far to say the adult responsible should be charged with negligence.
