F v Cumbria County Council and another (Fact-Finding No. 2)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The Family Division dismissed a father's application to discharge the care orders that had been made following a fact-finding hearing into the causes of injuries to one of his children (P) before her death in his care. The judge reviewed the medical/pathology evidence in light of testimony from new expert witnesses and maintained his earlier conclusion that the father had perpetrated a penetrative anal assault on P, either using his penis or some other unidentified object.
