(Family Division; Holman J; 29 June 2007)

In care proceedings it was found that non-accidental injuries had been caused to a child. The child and two siblings were placed into care and subsequently adopted and, when a further sibling was born, the local authority commenced care proceedings in respect of this fourth child. After the parents and the child underwent a successful residential assessment the local authority sought permission to withdraw the application in respect of the fourth child. Permission was granted: there was no current basis for considering that the child was at any risk of harm and every reason to believe the child was thriving in a positive family environment.

Further medical evidence had been amassed in respect of the injured child: this would form the basis of an appeal to the Court of Appeal in respect of the earlier orders made in connection with the first three children. No judicial comment would therefore be made in respect of this aspect of the case.
