R (PM) v Hertfordshire County Council [2010] EWHC 2056 (Admin); [2010] WLR (D) 229

“A local authority charged with obligations to children under ss 17 and 20 of the Children Act 1989 was not bound by a simple finding of fact by the First Tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) as to the age of an applicant for support. Such a finding was not a judgment in rem nor otherwise binding in law on the local authority, or on other strangers to the asylum and immigration appeal.”
