Foster Family Horror: Teen Abused Kids

Council bosses have admitted a "serious error of judgement" after a disturbed teenager was placed with a foster family and sexually abused their children.

Social workers failed to tell them the youth - who cannot be named for legal reasons - had a history of sexual behaviour involving youngsters.

He then went on to attack their two young children, and was jailed indefinitely at Cardiff Crown Court after admitting rape and sexual assault.

Judge Nicholas Cooke QC said the case was a tragedy for the couple, whose only wish was to serve the community by helping the teenager.

Vale of Glamorgan council has launched an investigation into the case, and said it deeply regrets the distress and harm caused to the family.

Phil Evans, Director of Social Services, added: "Although the inquiry is still at an early stage, it has become clear that there was a serious error of judgement in placing the young man in this family.

"Staff are taking this matter very seriously. We're doing all that we can to find out what went wrong and to ensure that such events are never repeated."

Allegations about the teenager's sexual behaviour were first made in 2004, when it was claimed he acted in a sexually inappropriate way to another boy.

In 2005, he is said to have sexually touched a boy while they were both living at a hostel in England.

Last year, he allegedly sexually assaulted a 16-year-old while they were staying in the same hostel.

A spokeswoman for the Care Council for Wales said it had been notified of the case and was awaiting further information.

A spokesman for the NSPCC said: "The NSPCC can confirm that it has agreed to provide an independent overview of the Vale of Glamorgan Council's internal case management inquiry."

This country is in serious trouble.
