A family court judge has blocked a bid by Islington Council to put a Hungarian baby up for adoption.
Mrs Justice Pauffley ruled the future of the one-year-old, whose parents are Hungarian, should be decided in Hungary not England.
The little girl’s parents were living in London and their daughter had been born in the UK.
Both mother and daughter were staying a foster home, while the father was homeless.
Social workers from the town hall had raised concerns about the youngster’s welfare and wanted to place her for adoption.

But the judge said Hungarian courts should make decisions about the girl’s future.
She added the woman had arrived in England six months before the little girl was born and she said the little girl had siblings living in Hungary.
