*Brent London Borough Council v K

Child – Care. An urgent application was made for a collection order regarding a vulnerable child. She was taken to a police station at 7.30pm, but was not collected until 3.02am. The Family Division stated that it was not acceptable for such an application to be granted by a judge and only then for inquiries to be made as to placement and transportation. It was incumbent on authorities to ensure that robust processes were in place.
