Tower Hamlets London Borough v B

Child – Care. The local authority had applied to remove a 16 year old girl and her brothers from the family home in circumstances where the girl had been the subject of a Child in Need plan and, subsequently, the girl and her parents had been arrested on suspicion of terrorism related offences. The Family Division refused to grant the order sought in relation to the boys as there was insufficient material at the relevant time on which to sanction their removal. The order would be granted in relation to the girl due to the continuing risk to her welfare of psychological and emotional harm from which she could not be protected if she remained in the home.
