More children may be sent to the UK if foster homes cannot be found in Guernsey, the island's family placement service has warned.

Team manager Michael Carter said despite the number of local foster carers doubling to 20 in the past two years, more were needed.

He said those especially in need of homes were aged nine and above.

Mr Carter said at this important time in a child's development they needed to be in a home with a family.
