CARE PROCEEDINGS: Re M (Sexual Abuse: Evidence) [2010] EWCA Civ 1030

Date:24 OCT 2010

(Court of Appeal; Hughes J; 12 August 2010)

The father was refused permission to appeal findings of sexual abuse. The judge had treated the young children's hearsay evidence appropriately and had been entitled to find as he did. Even in the light of the Supreme Court's judgment in Re W [2010] UKSC 12 there would be no question of these children being expected to give oral evidence.
