Rotherham Council deputy leader: 'Culpable should resign'

There has been a unanimous vote of no confidence in South Yorkshire's police and crime commissioner Shaun Wright at a meeting at Sheffield's Town Hall.

Meanwhile, there have also been calls for the entire membership of Rotherham Council to resign, after a heated public meeting.

A report last week said hundreds of children were abused in Rotherham from 1997 to 2013.

Deputy leader of the council Paul Lakin said he thought there should be resignations - but he denied any culpability himself.
