Discusses TP v United Kingdom [2001] 34 EHRR 42 where the complainants sought to extent the Osman ruling (but failed) and Z v United Kingdom [2001]34 EHRR 97 where the European Court of Human Rights recognised the positive obligations on the state inherent in both article 3 and article 8. Both cases emphasised that there is no immunity for local authorities being sued by those harmed by child protection processes.
