Coronavirus lockdown leads to concerns for vulnerable youth

There are warnings that children’s social services in England will face a large increase in demand as vulnerable children start to come out of lockdown.

The Association of Directors of Children’s Services has told the BBC that as schools reopen, teachers will begin to see those needing help, after being at home for many weeks.

The BBC’s Frankie McCamley met some young people in desperate need of help as coronavirus hit the UK.
