Sylvia Henry v Haringey London Borough Council (2010) QBD (Eady J) 1/7/2010

In this case the applicant, H, had initiated proceedings for libel against the defendant local authority who had published on its website claims that H had not raised concerns with it in respect of the return of Peter Connelly (known also as baby P) to his mother. H had expressed such concern. As such the applicant and defendant read a statement in open court in which the defendant local authority admitted their allegation was false, that H had not been implicated in any of the mistakes which had led up to the death of the child, and apologised for publishing the false statements and any distress caused; it also undertook not to do so again and pay undisclosed damages.
