Re V (A Child): CA 12 Oct 2004

The local authority had succeeded in its application for a freeing order, but the judge had also found that it had infringed the parents human riights by the way it had acted toward them before the birth of V, and had awarded sums of damages for that breach. The authority appealed against that finding.
Held: The order was indeed extraordinary. The appeal was allowed.
