Justice For LB - #LbBill
LB is short for Laughing Boy, the name used online for Connor Sparrowhawk. Connor was a fit and healthy young man, who loved buses, London, Eddie Stobart and speaking his mind. Connor had autism and epilepsy. On the 19 March 2013, he was admitted to hospital (Slade House Assessment and Treatment Unit run by Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust). He drowned in the bath on 4 July 2013. An entirely preventable death. http://lbbill.wordpress.com/
