Condolences to the family of Connor Sparrowhawk

My condolences to the family of Connor Sparrowhawk.  So sad to hear about the death of another person with learning disabilities, failed by the care system and a life lost to us.  I find it difficult to comment on this sort of thing as the important thing is the family who have lost a son.

I will therefore only pose a few short questions.
How was a death after an epileptic fit in the bath accepted by anyone initially as from 'natural causes'?
Where was (and is) CQC in this tragedy - and more importantly why weren't they there to prevent it  (Too busy to have carried out an inspection)?
Why is it that the only real check on the quality of care is still the family?

The BBC report on this is at
