Please don't take our child

Each year around 20,000 children have their futures decided by the family courts. Baby William Ward was one of them. His parents Jake and Victoria were investigated by police and social services when they were unable to explain a serious injury to their three-month-old son. It took them two years to clear their names and a further three years to win the right to speak completely openly about what happened to their family.

This video documents Panorama's, Darragh MacIntyre, reporting on the case of this ordinary couple and their extraordinary fight to open up the world of the family courts.
