I am afraid that what you have been told above is not accurate
The mother of the children was entitled to take them to her mother's property and has done nothing wrong in doing so UNLESS her mother lives abroad.
It is never sensible to involve Social Services unless there is a serious and immediate risk of harm to a child
The Police cannot keep children other than in an emergency situation - and then not for 72 hours.
Your son needs to file the C100 tomorrow morning and ask for an urgent hearing if he believes that the children are at risk
You are welcome - I hope all goes well for you
