Struggle to find adoptive parents for children in Nottinghamshire

For many young people living in care, the opportunity of finding a home with a foster family can give them much-needed stability and support.

But one council in the East Midlands says it is struggling to find foster homes for older children and groups of siblings.

Nottinghamshire County Council says there is a growing demand, with more than eight hundred children in need, and it is appealing for new carers to come forward.
