Norway: Parents against the state

The case of a young couple in Norway whose five children were taken away by the state has sparked protests against Norway's child protection service, Barnevernet.

Marius and Ruth's children were removed from their care with no warning and split between three different sets of emergency foster parents.

The couple discuss their feelings about the separation, and some of the meetings they have had with their children.
