This report on the death of a child at the hands of the carer with an SGO is striking. It highlights the way Councils, irrespective of Re B-S or Re B, have used and continue to use SGOs as a means to relieve themselves of their statutory responsibilities. There will be a number of SGO breakdowns in the future as the miss use of SGOs will come back to haunt LAs - but sadly not the courts that made them.
