RE B (CHILDREN) (2006)

PUBLISHED June 21, 2006

In care proceedings, where it was alleged that injuries to an 11-month-old child were non accidental, the judge erred in finding that the mother had exaggerated evidence without giving her an opportunity to deal with that point in evidence. The medical evidence was not such that the only conclusion that could be drawn was that the child's injuries had been caused by shaking.
