(Court of Appeal, Thorpe, Longmore, McCombe LJJ, 22 January 2013)

Contact between the father and child was suspended due to concerns the father suffered from anger management problems. The Cafcass officer recommended only indirect contact until an investigation had been completed. The father's GP provided a report stating the father suffered from no anger problems and therefore the judge concluded that direct contact could resume. The mother appealed.

Appeal allowed. The GP had not had sight of the Cafcass report and recommendations which plainly destroyed the reliance placed upon the GP's opinion and the judge's conclusion. The matter was remitted with directions for the Cafcass report to be presented to the GP.
