*Re DE (a Child)

Practice – Family proceedings. The local authority had in place a care plan in respect of the child, D. Thereafter, D remained at home for 18 months with his parents under the care plan. The local authority social worker became increasingly worried about aspects of his care and concluded that D should be removed from his parents' care to foster carers and gave notice to the parents to that effect. The father applied for an injunction under s 8 of the Human Rights Act 1998. The judge refused the injunction and the father applied for permission to appeal. The Family Division granted permission and allowed the appeal on the basis of established law.
