Adoption system 'too bureaucratic"

The government is to overhaul the way people in England are checked to see if they are suitable to adopt children.

Ministers say the process is too slow, and that many are put off while others are turned away unnecessarily.

The Children's Minister, Tim Loughton, and David Holmes, Chief Executive of the British Association for Adoption and Fostering, discussed the issue on BBC Breakfast.
