The founder of Rotherham Muslim Group has condemned the sexual exploitation of 1,400 children in the town between 1997 and 2013, and has called for prosecutions.

Muhbeen Hussain told BBC News that he accepted that many of the perpetrators were from the Pakistani community, but insisted that there was nothing in the Muslim culture that condoned the abuse.
