F (a child) (placement order: proportionality)

Child – Care. The judge had erred in granting care and placement orders in relation to R, a 15-month-old child, on the basis that it had not been shown that the evidence in the case met the exacting standard necessary for orders leading to adoption. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the mother's appeal, set aside the care and placement orders and remitted the matter for reconsideration by a different judge.
