Hampshire An Adotion 'Hot Spot'

A map of England showing where most children are in need of adoptive parents has been published.

Hampshire is one of the hotspots - where at least 60 children need a new family.

In Dorset as many as 32 children are on the adoption list.

The map is aimed at helping to speed up the adoption process so that prospective parents can see where the children who need a home are.

A telephone hotline is also going live, with parents who've already adopted giving advice on navigating the process.
