Fewer same-sex couples who apply to adopt in Northern Ireland have a child placed with them than LGBT couples in other parts of the UK, figures obtained by BBC News NI suggest.

In 2013, Northern Ireland laws changed to allow same-sex couples to adopt for the first time.

It was the last part of the UK to implement the change.

Figures released show that since the law change in Northern Ireland, 30 same-sex couples have applied to adopt.
