Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council has released a statement after a report in the Telegraph said that social workers rejected two experienced foster carers when they discovered that they were members of UKIP.
After a group of sibling children were placed with agency foster carers, issues were raised regarding the long-term suitability of the carers for these particular children.
With careful consideration, a decision was taken to move the children to alternative care. We continue to keep the situation under review.
The UKIP foster parents who had three children removed have told ITV News fostering is not about politics.
An under fire council that removed three children from the care of foster parents who are members of UKIP launched an investigation.
