Families flee UK to avoid forced adoption

Some families who feel they are at risk of forced adoptions are fleeing the UK to escape social services.

Every year around 11,000 children in England are taken from their parents and placed into care.

Campaigners accuse England of having the worst record in Europe for forced adoptions.

There are concerns that it could potentially put children at risk.

Rachel Royce reports.

Inside Out is broadcast on BBC One South East on Monday, 6 October at 19:30, and nationwide on the iPlayer for seven days thereafter.
