A judge in Hull has ruled that a two-year-old boy should be removed his parents’ care, after a health visitor raised concerns about the amount of cigarette smoke in the family home.

Health visitor Julie Allen told the family court that she hadn’t come across such a “smoky house” in her 10-year career.

She described the little boy, who’d already been prescribed an inhaler, as being surrounded by a “visible cloud” of cigarette smoke.

After being told of other concerns- including the cleanliness of the house and drug use by the boy’s father- Judge Louise Pemberton ruled that he should be placed for adoption.

Details of the case have emerged after the judge issued a written judgement following the hearing last month. She ruled that the family and the local authority involved could not be identified.
