A Local Authority v MD (mother) and others

Human rights – Right to liberty and security. In care order proceedings relating to a RD, a 14-and-a-half year old child, the applicant local authority's placement of RD in residential accommodation in Scotland had not deprived her of her liberty in such a way as to engage art 5 of the European Convention on Human Rights. Accordingly, the Family Court ruled that there was no deprivation of liberty.
