J & MM (Children) [2013] EWHC 1820 (Fam) (26 June 2013)

In a case with a stark warning for grandparent carers the court made final care orders with a plan to remove the children from family care rather than special guardianship orders with the children remaining with their grandparents. The court sanctioned this change of case by the local authority because the grandparents were found to have been permitting ‘sneaky visits’ by the parents and to not accept the need for the children to live outside their parents care.
