I believe this was mentioned in a previous thread about the recent abuse claims in care homes. Just found the latest.

That is really sad that he was NOT able to be with his dad for a long time.:( I am really glad that Steven is now with his dad. :)

And here's the judgment: http://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWHC/COP/2011/1377.html Necessary bedtime reading for all, I think.

And yes, I did hear on Radio 4 last night, some Hillingdon town hall bureaucrat whining the phrase "lessons will be learned". Maybe they'd be learned a little faster if these people were held personally responsible for their actions.

Justice prevailed for once, thanks mainly to the efforts of the dad, an fb compaign and a good lawyer.

What struck me was what a great father this guy is, am glad he & his son are back together. Good news day.
