A v London Borough of Wandsworth and others

Practice – Family proceedings. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division allowed a mother's appeal against a decision to make a final care order at an adjourned Issues Resolution Hearing. The court found that the instant proceedings had not been fair to the mother or the children. They had failed to accord to the mother her rights under art 6 the European Convention on Human Rights to a fair hearing, and in all the circumstances had fallen short of safeguarding the procedural and substantive rights of the children under art 8 of the Convention.
