[2016] EWHC 2660 (Fam)

Cathryn McGahey QC represented South Yorkshire Police. The judge was required to decide whether lifelong anonymity should be granted to four men who in the past had been (but were no longer) alleged to have been involved in sexual exploitation of a minor.

The minor had been made a ward of court; the question was whether anonymity of the men should continue following discharge of the wardship. The police and local authority contended that it should. The Times opposed the application. Lifelong anonymity was granted.
