Ordeal for family who took child to hospital

Donna and John Wade, pictured with their children Ollie, now five, and Isabella, three, want an apology after Doncaster social services tried to take their family away
"When John and Donna Wade took their six-month-old daughter to hospital it was the start of a nightmare."

"Isabella had an enlarged head after contracting bacterial meningitis as a newborn, and the couple were understandably concerned for her health."

"But their caring action resulted in their family being ripped apart by social services."

"Their two-year-old son Ollie was taken away by police and social services for two days because doctors thought his sister’s head swelling was suspicious."

"On top of that, social workers applied for a care order to remove both children from their parents."

"Later, the application was withdrawn after the hospital discovered that Isabella’s swelling was a result of a brain haemorrhage because of her medical condition."

"Ollie was finally allowed to go back home but his parents say he is yet to recover from the trauma of being taken from his family."
