London Borough of Islington v Al-Alas & Anor [2012] EWHC 865 (Fam)

The court considered a medically very complex fact finding arising out of the death of a four month old child. There was competing medical evidence as to the likely causation. The court in the specific circumstances of the child’s death did not find that the parents had caused any injuries or trauma to the child. The issue of vitamin D deficiency and need for further study as to it’s prevalence and effect was also highlighted.
