Salford Council is being sued by a foster mother who claims a
sex offender was placed in her care without her knowledge.
The claim comes just weeks after the high court ruled foster
parents could sue Essex Council in a separate case.
Carol Parkins claims Salford social workers failed to tell her a
child placed in her care was a sex offender. The youth later
allegedly abused a boy in her care.
A council spokesperson said: "This relates to incidents which
took place several years ago. At the moment this is a matter we
would refer to the courts."
