Court of appeal in London backs family court judge’s decision to send boy, 11, and girl, seven, into long-term foster care. Details of the case emerged in a ruling by Sir James Munby, the president of the family division of the high court, and Lord Justice McFarlane, after a hearing at the court of appeal in central London. The judges did not identify the family involved, but said social services chiefs at Devon county council had responsibility for the children’s welfare. They heard the children lived with their mother at their maternal grandmother’s home. Their father, who was also described as having a very significant learning disability, lived elsewhere but had regular contact with them.
