Storyline

For four years the Barlows fostered a young girl - Minnie Biddulph - whose biological parents were both alcoholics. The Barlows hoped to adopt Minnie but instead Miss Prossitt, the Head of Social Services, ordered that Minnie be returned to her biological mother who was now recovered. However the prosecution say that Mr. Barlow ignored the order and took the girl to London. He is now in court accused of child stealing. The defence case is that he was never told that Minnie had to be returned. They also suggest that Miss Prossitt's decision was racially motivated as the Barlows are an African-Caribbean family and Minnie a white girl. Written by Alan Briscoe
