Rotherham social services are being accused by a couple of removing three foster children from their care because the council disapproved of their membership of the UK Independence Party.
The party's leader Nigel Farage has branded the situation "a bloody outrage" and earlier told the Today programme he was "very angry, very upset" at the decision made by Rotherham Council.
Joyce Thacker, the Council's Strategic Director of Children and Young People's Services responsible, has defended her decision: "We always try to place children in a sensible cultural placement.
"There are some strong views in the UKIP party and we have to think of the future of the children."
