Rotherham Borough council has come under fire for breaking up a foster family because the parents were members of the UK Independence Party. Three children have been removed from the care of a married couple because social workers were concerned about their "cultural and ethnic needs."
The South Yorkshire foster parents claimed they had been told Ukip - which campaigns for British withdrawal from the European Union and tougher controls on immigration - was "racist".
The actions of the Labour controlled Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council were met with fury from UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who called for resignations over what he said was an "appalling" decision. Labour urged the council to mount an urgent investigation.
