A government investigation says that nursery schools which fail to find children a place fast enough should pay a fine to the parents.

The report says that around 3,000 children a year in Sweden wait too long for a place at pre-school.

Sweden's working parents largely depend on state-funded child care, which accepts children between the ages of one and six years old.

According to the law a municipality must find a place for all children no more than four months after they apply.

The worst places for long waits are Gothenburg, Huddinge in Stockholm county and Vilhelmina in the rural north.
