just read this and it is shocking the levels some people will stoop to.
However, not sure how old your son is, but at most ages they can be interviewed by professionals, my son m be having a cams interview, these people are able to see below the surface, even if she has brainwashed him to say that you abused him, it will come out that you havent, he will not be clever enough nor need to be to hide the truth from a professional interviewer.

Finally got hold of a copy of the social services report after much begging and pleading they faxed it to my solicitors. They have made clear that there is no physical evidence of abuse and although they don''t talk in absolutes that there is ''a very low likelihood that [child] was sexually harmed by his father''. They then proceed to question why the mother would make such an allegation. They suggest mental health, her own experiences (her step-father was a convicted paedophile so I suspect that is what''s being referred to) or the negative relationship with me. They don''t specifically express an opinion on which of these it is, but she is now being monitored by her midwife through her current pregnancy.

The following boxes are ticked towards the end:

Is the child/young person a child in need as defined by the Children Act 1989? - Yes

A child whose health or development will be significantly impaired without the provision of services (is suffering or is likely to suffer significant harm) - Yes

Does this mean that my child is on the ''at risk register''? I appreciate that this might be a question that only a social worker can answer but if anyone has any experience I would appreciate their thoughts.

I cant say for sure but i would suggest thats what it means. Especially as your ex is being monitored through her midwife for her unborn child, it makes sense that her other children will be monitored as well.

SS should be able to disclose any information about your child and concerns to you though, so a quick phone call may be i order?
