Re G-L-T (children)

Family Proceedings – Fact Finding. Following a fact finding hearing within care proceedings relating to four children, the judge had made findings that the father had 'failed to protect' the youngest child (J) by failing to inform various medical professionals that J was no longer suffering from seizures or apnoea. Consequently, the judge held that J had received medication and oxygen which he no longer required. In allowing the father's appeal against those findings, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that the findings not only contradicted the available evidence but also contradicted the findings the judge had made in his substantive judgment.
