Re: C (injuries to baby: fact-finding)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. A 10-month old child was admitted to hospital with three fractures to the leg and a tear under the tongue. A local authority brought proceedings for a care order and a placement order in respect of the child. The Family Division conducted a fact-finding hearing and found that, on the facts, the father had caused the child's injuries, but the mother had not. It further found that the parents had separated and that they were unlikely to resume their relationship in the future.
