Ban B&Bs for young care leavers, say MPs

Young adults leaving the care system in England should be provided with regulated accommodation and not be placed in bed and breakfasts, say MPs.

The Commons Education Select Committee says B&B accommodation is "threatening and frightening" and should only be used in emergency situations.

MPs say these youngsters should not have to leave care until they are 21.
