In a case which highlighted the difficult balance to be struck between child protection and the rights of the individual, a police force has been criticised by the High Court for its 'blinkered' treatment of a teacher who was acquitted of sexually touching four of his pupils. Despite the jury’s not guilty verdict, the force had insisted on listing the allegations on the man’s enhanced criminal record certificate (ECRC), effectively destroying his professional career.
In a painful illustration of the truism that even the best laid plans depend for their success upon the existence of good will between the parties, a bid by a multi-millionaire businessman to dispose of his wealth in a tax-efficient manner backfired and tore his family apart in a bitter High Court dispute.
