Welsh children in care: 'Try something different'

A judge has called for more investment and new court services in Wales to break the cycle of families having multiple children taken into care.

In one case, 11 children had to be removed for their own safety from one mother over 15 years, BBC Wales found.

Judge Nicholas Crichton said Wales should now adopt Family Drug and Alcohol Courts he helped establish in England to break the care cycle.

The Welsh Government said it was examining the issue.
