The Honourable Mrs Justice Lang DBE


The King on the application of
(1) CG (by his mother and litigation friend, TG)
(2) TG


West Sussex County Council


UPON the parties entering into a Consent Order;

AND UPON the Claimants’ application for an anonymity order;

Following consideration of the documents lodged by the parties;

Order by the Honourable Mrs Justice Lang DBE

  1. Pursuant to CPR r.39.2, in any report of these proceedings, there shall be no publication of the name and address of the Claimants and the litigation friend, nor any other particulars likely to lead to their identification. In the proceedings, the First Claimant shall be anonymised and referred to as “CG” and the Second Claimant and litigation friend shall be anonymised and referred to as “TG”.
  2. The signed Consent Order attached hereto is approved.


I have granted an anonymity order because of the vulnerability of the First Claimant. In the circumstances, a departure from the general principle of open justice is justified.
