Disabled Leicester boy gets foster parents

A boy with disabilities has been placed with foster parents after officials took the unusual step of running a TV campaign.

Adrian, from Leicester, was being cared for in a children's home but social workers said he needed his own family.

The campaign paid off and now the 10-year-old lives with Layanne Park and her partner Barney.

East Midlands Today's Helen Astle reports.
