Children and Social Services

A teenage mother from Nottingham who was reunited with her newborn baby by a judge will face a social services application to take the boy away again.

The baby was born to the 18-year-old, who has just left local authority care, in a hospital early on Wednesday.

A High Court judge ruled the boy was taken without a court order.

Solicitor Stuart Luke said the mother, who has mental health problems, would oppose any move to take away her son.

The boy returned to his mother - who was taken into care after running away from home and started taking drugs - about nine hours after being taken by social services staff.
