(Court of Appeal, Thorpe, Etherton, Lewison LJJ, 20 March 2012) The mother suffered from an unstable personality disorder and there were concerns for her use of drugs and alcohol. When her baby was born she was removed and placed with the maternal grandmother who cared well for the child.
The local authority sought to secure a placement order with distant relatives in the extended family. The mother and grandmother opposed that placement. The judge agreed the local authority care plan and made the placement order.
The grandmother appealed. The Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal. The judge followed the course signposted by all experts in the case and could not be found to have erred in the exercise of her discretion.
