Plymouth City Council v G (Children) [2010] EWCA Civ 1271 (10 November 2010)

Local authority applied for care orders in relation to three children and placement orders in relation to the younger two. The Recorder granted full care orders in relation to the children but dismissed the applications for placement orders. The local authority appealed. The Court of Appeal overturned the care orders made in relation to the two younger children and the judge's order dismissing the placement order applications, and substituted (i) an order adjourning the placement order applications and (ii) interim care orders for 28 days.
