London's vulnerable children sent to Kent care homes

London's vulnerable children sent to Kent care homes

BBC Inside Out has found children in care from London are being sent to specialist care and foster homes up to 80 miles away in Kent.

 

Every local authority has a duty to keep children in care as close to home as possible, but London boroughs say they simply do not have enough places to look after vulnerable children.
