social services were involved with us and said that he had lost his parental rights to his eldest son due to beating me up in front of him and trying to take an overdose infront of him to . i have paper work regarding this and they also said that if he wanted them back he would have to go to court for them. at the moment im not willing to let him have any contact as i belive his still on drugs but if he would to be drug tested before seeing the children then i would consider a contact center as he dont hardley know his youngest son . i have up to recently taken my boys back to london to see him and his family but he either dont turn up or turns up for 10 mins then leaves and majority of the time his either drunk or off his head on drugs.

Hi
You certainly do not have to take them back to London in those circumstances - and you have little to fear from any Court Application that he makes
By all means say that you are willing to agree to contact in a Contact Centre local to you if he is willing to make the commitment - but there is no other contact that he will obtain given his record of abuse and drugs

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
