(Court of Appeal; Ward LJ; 30 April 2008)

Refusing leave to appeal the judge described a tragic, bordering on scandalous, state of affairs, in which the behaviour of mother in poisoning the child against the father had led to the child refusing to have any further contact with the father. Although there was no justification for the child's or the mother's stance towards the father, the father had been right to concede that no order for contact should be made. A copy of the judgment was to be sent to the child's solicitor with a direction that the solicitor explain to the child that father had been concerned enough for the child to bring the case, emphasising that no blame attached to him for the breakdown of contact. The solicitor was to report directly to the judge the consequences of further discussion with the child. It was a public scandal that this had gone so badly wrong.
