Re P (A Child) (care order)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The parents' appeal against final care orders with respect to allegations of sexual abuse by the father proceeded by consent, although the judge's findings that the threshold criteria were met on the basis of the child being beyond parental control was not challenged. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the appeal having formed the same view as the parties, and gave guidance on initiating an appeal absent an approved transcript and when a party sought clarification of the judge's judgment.
