Vicky Haigh who is due to give birth in four days to her second child, sent a cri de cœur [1]by email on Saturday night after three Irish police offers banged on her door. Christopher Booker had reported in the Telegraph the same morning: The police hunt is on for Vicky Haigh, though she is not a ‘missing person’ [2]and writes that “wasting police time is a punishable offence”.

But Doncaster Council ignore punishable offences: their “head lawyer” who instigated proceedings against Vicky and her seven-year old daughter turned out to be a social worker. The subsequent solicitor seems to have issued “orders” without hearings having taken place.

Someone was commissioned by Ms Haigh to investigate why her daughter was taken away from her in November 2010 and given into the “care” of her father’s mother. She put together an extensive chronology of the case[4] for the Police to investigate and called all courts that were supposedly involved: Sheffield, Birmingham and London. But while there is a Sheffield case number, there are no records of any hearing in any court.
