Rotherham foster couple want children back

A foster couple who had three children removed from their care because they were members of UKIP have demanded an apology from Rotherham Council.

The couple said they were "bereft" when the children were suddenly removed after two months of care.

They were told their care was exemplary, but their party membership presented a "safeguarding issue for the children".

Rotherham Council is investigating what happened.

In their first TV interview they said they would like the children back.

Ed Thomas reports.
