Termination of placements

11.—(1) If it appears to an authority that the placement is no longer in accordance with its duty in respect of the child under Article 26(1) of the Order or would prejudice the safety of the child, it shall terminate the placement and shall remove the child forthwith from the person with whom he is placed.

(2) Where, in the case of a child who has been placed in the area of an area authority by another authority, it appears to the area authority that it would be detrimental to the welfare of the child if he continued to be so placed, the area authority may remove the child forthwith from the person with whom he is placed.

(3) Where a child is removed under paragraph (2), the area authority shall forthwith notify the other authority of that fact and that authority shall make other arrangements for the care of the child as soon as is practicable.
