China has announced plans to ease its one child policy and abolish its controversial system of labour camps.

The move comes after a meeting of a key decision-making body of the governing Communist Party.

In 2012, the BBC's Damian Grammaticas reported on the controversial policy and visited one couple to hear their story.
