More than 1,400 children have been referred to social workers in Coventry in less than a year.
It follows a highly critical report by Ofsted that has found children's services in Coventry to be inadequate.
The report, which was published today, also found that caseloads for social workers in the city are too high.
- In March 2013, social workers were working with 3,085 Coventry children.
- By the end of February 2014, social workers were working with 4,529 Coventry children.
