The Guardian (p5) reports that Devon CC was yesterday rebuked by a high court judge for trying to remove a nine year old boy from his foster parents without taking account of his feelings.

Devon CC also, says the paper, failed to discuss the decision with the foster parents.

The council was concerned that the foster family could not manage the boy, meet his needs or accept him for what he was and worried that they had not applied to adopt him, apparently for fear of losing financial support.
