L (A child) 2013 EWCA Civ 489 (03 May 2013)

The CA allowed a mother’s appeal and substituted an interim supervision order for an interim care order allowing a 4 month old child to be cared for by her mother in the mother and baby unit of a prison. The court reviewed the case law on interim care orders and gave guidance emphasising that an ICO should be about keeping a child safe for the duration of the proceedings.
