The Refugee Council said the UK "has a long way to go" after an inspection found border officials failed to trace the families of nearly two-thirds of asylum-seeking children who arrived in the country alone.
Policy officer Judith Dennis said:

Children should be treated as children first, regardless of their immigration status.
