JUDGEMENT DEFERRED IN SURREY CC CHILDMINDER CASE

Mrs Cora Dowling, the Derbyshire mother who is suing a childminder, the childminder's husband and Surrey CC over brain damage suffered by her four-month-old baby, Thomas, will have to wait for London's High Court to rule in her case.

Mr Justice Scott Baker reserved his judgement after a two week trial and said he would give his decision 'as soon as possible'. Also awaiting his judgement with baited breath are former childminder Christine Walton, 36, her husband Martin, 38, and the council.

Mrs Dowling is suing all three over severe brain damage suffered by Thomas - allegedly whilst in Mrs Walton's care - in September 1989. The judge said the facts of the case were complex and it could be some time before he gave his ruling.
