Interim order made under inherent jurisdiction while mental capacity assessment undertaken (High Court)

In London Borough of Wandsworth v M and others [2017] EWHC 2435 (Fam), Hayden J made an interim order under the inherent jurisdiction of the High Court to protect a 17 year old, in circumstances where the court could not make an order under the Children Act 1989 or wardship, and there was an inadequate mental capacity assessment to permit making an order under the Mental Capacity Act 2005.
