Re M (Children) (admission of expert evidence)

Family proceedings – Appeal. The applicant mother was refused permission to appeal out of time from the judge's finding of fact that she had administered sedatives to the children, so that the results of drug tests would seem to support her claim that their father and others had drugged them for the purpose of sexually abusing them. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, granted permission to cite the permission application, and further refused the mother permission to appeal from the judge's decision, refusing her applications to file further expert evidence and to reopen the fact-finding hearing.
