A woman who is part of the only known family in the UK in which three generations are adopted has described meeting her adoptive daughter for the first time.

Karen's father was adopted, he adopted her, and she and her husband have adopted a little girl.

Karen told BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire: "I think I fell in love with her the moment I read her child permanence report.

"She's been our daughter ever since and it's been the best two and a half years of our life."
