Wandsworth London Borough Council v Lennard

Contempt of court – Committal. The applicant local authority had failed to prove, to the requisite standard, that the respondent, whose children had been made the subject of a care order, had breached an injunction by using offensive, foul and threatening words towards one of the authority's employees. Accordingly, the Family Division dismissed the authority's application to commit the respondent for the alleged breach of the injunction.
