Grandparents' access to children to be encouraged

Agreements allowing grandparents access to their grandchildren after parents split up are being encouraged in a review of the law in England and Wales.

The family justice review will suggest a "statement in law" about the importance of both parents having a relationship with their children.

The interim report said such agreements should also "reinforce the importance of a relationship with grandparents".

Report author David Norgrove who chairs the Family Justice review panel said the interests of children was the priority.
