Newsnight has spent months reporting on the plight of teenagers in care, placed by their councils in unregulated supported accommodation. We’ve found vulnerable children at risk of exploitation, living in places that are simply not meeting their needs, not fit for purpose.

This is a sector of homes supposedly designed to offer 16 and 17 year olds support, but not care – because they are older.

Katie Razzall reports.

Newsnight is the BBC’s flagship news and current affairs TV programme – with analysis, debate, exclusives, and robust interviews.
