In re S (A Child) (Abduction: Custody Appeal): [2012] UKSC 10;  [2012] WLR (D)  78

“A child should not be returned to his country of habitual residence if the court considered that his mother who had to accompany him would on return suffer such anxieties that their effect on her mental health would create an intolerable situation for the child. It did not matter whether the mother’s anxieties were reasonable or not.”
