The Daily Mail wants your story

Hi Jim,

Thankyou very much for your help on the phone. As we discussed, it would be wonderful if you could keep in contact to let me know of any grandparents fighting for their grandchildren who have seen them fostered or adopted by other families.
If there are any who have a particular story to tell about their struggle, the Daily Mail is very supportive of grandparents and would really like to talk to them.
Nice speaking to you and I hope to be in touch with you again soon.

Kind regards,

Victoria Allen

  1. Here is a story about Stephen Tonkmoor, a loving Grandfather.
    His daughter lost custody to a father who did not even have anywhere stable to live. She was refused contact when she complained. So grandad applied for contact, only to be told that a letter from a Local Authority had been seen by CAFCASS suggesting it was 'not a good idea' for him to see the children. He continued, then reached a dead end when his communications were being ignored. At that stage he demanded to see the letter. Ignored. He wrote to the relevant LA who replied that they had never heard of him or his children. By now, reference to the letter had been used in court hearings. That is fraud, perjury and perverting the course of justice. Tonkmoor complained to each succesive level in CAFCASS, no responses. Eventually, he posted details through Anthony Douglas's home front door. He went back again, Douglas was home and invited him in for a chat. He promised to look into the matter. Instead, he sued Tonkmoor for harassment. Tonkmoor was convicted at Higbury Majistrate's Court.
