Foster parents speak out after children are removed

The foster parents who had three children removed from them because they are members of UKIP have spoken about the case for the first time.

The children, two sisters and their brother, have been split up since being removed. The girls, one of whom is a baby, are with one family - the boy is with another.

While those involved wait for the outcome of an inquiry ordered by the Education Secretary Michael Gove, the couple, from Rotherham, say politics should play no part in the welfare of children. The voices of the couple, who don't wish to be identified, have been disguised.
