It's three children or nothing - that's what a council in the South is telling prospective adoptive parents. The local authority has closed its waiting list to those only willing to take on one or two children who need a new home.

Officials say the only other circumstance in which they'll consider new applicants is if they can prove they can offer a home to a child with complex special needs.
