Re B (Children: long term foster care)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The local authority had issued care proceedings in respect of two children. Initially, the authority had recommended supervision orders, but later changed the plan to one of foster care. The judge ordered that the children would be removed into foster care and the mother appealed. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in allowing the appeal, held that the judgment had been flawed in its approach to the events which had led to the authority's change of mind and had been lacking in the detail that had been required to substantiate the decision. The matter would be remitted for rehearing.
