Moving children in care puts them at risk of exploitation says charity

Children who are moved from area to area while in care risk sexual exploitation as well as miss out on adequate education, health care and support, a charity has warned.

Tros Gynnal Plant said some children get moved to new local authority areas.

But it said councils often did not follow procedures to inform the child's new local authority of the move.

The body which represents social services managers denied children got lost within the system.
