A Local Authority v D and others

Family proceedings – Evidence. During the course of care proceedings the Family Division considered what further assessment, if any, there should be of the father, in circumstances where the father, who lived in Somaliland, wished to care for the children himself. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office had advised against travel to Somaliland and the court held that it would not be appropriate for the court to authorise an independent social worker travelling to the region to assess the father.
