188 children a day put on Child Protection Plans.

An average of 188 children a day in England are being put on protection plans because they are at risk of abuse or neglect, official figures reveal.

Councils started 68,770 child protection plans during 2017-18, a rise of 2,360 in a year.

The Local Government Association (LGA) said councils were "pushed to the brink by unprecedented demand".

The government claimed the figures showed families were getting the support they needed.

Child protection plans are drawn up by councils to set out how a child can be kept safe and what support can be offered to families.

In 2017-18, there were 198,090 investigations into possible harm, up 56% since 2012-13.
