UKIP foster couple would like a 'public apology'

A couple whose three foster children were removed because of their membership of UKIP would like a public apology from Rotherham Council.

The council removed the children because the couple's political affiliation was seen as being at odds with their European backgrounds.

We feel that we have personally been slandered and we would like a public apology from Rotherham.

We would also like something in the form of a letter stating that they have got it wrong in this case and that it will not be on our records that we have had children removed from our care.
