A baby, who was ordered to be returned to her teenage mother by Mr Justice Munby at an emergency High Court hearing on Wednesday, has been removed and placed in care today.

Yesterday, Newswatch reported that Justice Munby ordered the immediate return of a newborn baby saying the social workers had taken the child illegally. The baby was only two-hours-old when he was taken from his 18-year-old mother at 4am by Nottingham social services.

Today Nottingham social services obtained an interim care order and again removed the baby from his mother.

In a statement issued after the hearing, the local authority said: "Nottingham city council is pleased that the court has now made an interim care order that enables the council to provide appropriate protection for the baby whilst continuing to support the mother who is also our concern in this case.

"The council does not intend to say anything about the background to the case which is not already public. Suffice to say that the council and a range of other partner agencies had enough concern for the baby's welfare during the pregnancy to believe that action would be needed to protect the baby when it was born."
