Sir: You report two compensatory payouts on 15 December. In one case, a traumatised police sergeant was awarded pounds 75,000 for seeing his fiancee injured in a road accident at work. In the other, a disabled 81- year-old woman was violently sexually assaulted on more than one occasion by another resident in her care home before preventative measures were put in place. She was awarded pounds 2,500. Good to see justice being done, isn't it?
