Adoption UK media volunteers respond to US news anchor's remarks

Two of Adoption UK’s media volunteers were interviewed on LBC radio this week about the on-air remarks made by an American news anchor who claimed  US Olympic star Simone Biles's adoptive mother and father are 'not her parents'.

Polly Penter, pictured with her adoptive father, described the NBC gymnastics announcer’s comment as “ignorant and daft”.

Adoptive parent Alison Woodhead (pictured on the left), was also interviewed as part of the discussion.
