There has been a “huge” rise in the number of newborns who are subject to care proceedings in England, according to figures compiled for the first time.

Some 2,018 babies were involved in such cases in 2013, compared with 802 in 2008, the University of Lancaster said.


About half were taken from mothers with other children in care – one woman had 16 children removed – and a third were from women who became mothers as teens.

Education Secretary Nicky Morgan said the figures were "worrying".


Lead researcher Prof Karen Broadhurst said there had been "a general trend towards taking more timely action" where children could be at risk, but the number of newborns taken into care was "disproportionately increasing".
