Family proceedings - Orders in family proceedings - Care order - Fact-finding hearing - Mother being sole carer of child - Child suffering injuries and medical evidence concluding injuries due to abuse - Local authority applying for care and placement orders - Court making findings in respect of allegations that child physically abused and to identify person responsible.
Family proceedings Orders in family proceedings. The mother was the sole carer of a child who was born in 2012. In 2014, the child suffered injuries, which the medical evidence attributed to abuse. The local authority applied for care and placement orders. The Family Division conducted a fact-finding hearing and ruled that the child's injuries had been inflicted deliberately by her mother, that the threshold for orders had been met, both by the suffering of significant harm and by the clear risk of repetition. Care and placement orders were granted to allow the authority to implement a plan in respect of the child.
