Two recent DNS stories:
https://www.disabilitynewsservice.com/dwp-hounded-disabled-woman-for-years-before-her-starvation-death-papers-show/
https://www.disabilitynewsservice.com/disabled-mans-body-found-six-months-after-dwp-cut-off-his-benefits/

In the first a SAR is apparently due to take place. 

In the second the reporting is based on a SAR report.  It appears, from the reporting, that although DWP followed their procedures they were not sufficient to avoid this outcome.

A summary of the SAR is available here: https://www.telfordsafeguardingpartnership.org.uk/downloads/file/72/safeguarding-adult-review-e—-february-2020

Four opposition parties have written to Chloe Smith, the new Work and Pensions Secretary calling for a public inquiry into suicides and serious harm linked to the benefits system. The letter is signed by MPs representing the Liberal Democrats, Scottish National Party, Plaid Cymru and the Green Party.
