Technical Editor

(Court of Appeal, Moylan, Peter Jackson and Newey LJJ, 28 February 2020)

Public law children – Child assessment order – Judge refused order

The Court of Appeal allowed the appeal; the judge's decision was not one that he could reasonably have reached. There was a clear basis for serious concern about the children's welfare.
