DR v Cambridgeshire County Council and others

Practice – Family proceedings. The judge had fallen into error in her assessment of the evidence, so that her finding of sexually-motivated abuse by the appellant father of his son, S, was not safe. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the father's appeal against a finding made in care proceedings brought by the first respondent local authority and remitted the matter for retrial by a different judge.
