CONTACT: Re L (Contact) [2008]

(Court of Appeal; Thorpe and Rix LJJ; 24 July 2008)

Following an allegation by the child that he had been abused by a resident of the borough in which the mother lived, the CAFCASS officer recommended that the child should not be required to have contact with the mother in her borough of residence.
