Blackpool Borough Council v A (A child) and others (care proceedings)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. K, who was two years old, had died as a result of injuries sustained while in the care of G, who was her mother's partner. The Family Court carried out a fact-finding hearing. It held that G was responsible for K's death, but that the mother's care had fallen below that which it would be reasonable to expect a parent to have given. In the circumstances, the threshold criteria for making a care or supervision order were established.
