MacShane on Rotherham abuse: 'No constituent came to see me'

27 August 2014 Last updated at 15:32 BST

Rotherham's former Labour MP, Denis MacShane, has told the BBC that "no constituent, no child, no family came to see me" in relation to the sexual exploitation of children in Rotherham.

An inquiry found at least 1,400 children in Rotherham were sexually exploited by predominantly Asian criminal gangs between 1997 and 2013.

Mr MacShane also told the BBC's World at One that there was a "culture of not wanting to rock the multi-cultural community vote" in the town.
