The High Court has ruled against plans by Barnet council in north London to cut the jobs of sheltered housing wardens. The decision gave campaigners cause to cheer in the run-up to Christmas.

The wardens, who provide critical on-site care to vulnerable elderly people, had been due to be replaced by much cheaper “roving” service.

Barnet Trades Union Council mounted a significant campaign against the scheme with friends and family of sheltered housing residents, although it was only in December that Barnet council was forced to back down.
