Reaction in Rotherham to abuse inquiry findings

People in Rotherham react to an inquiry that says at least 1,400 children in the town were sexually exploited by mainly Pakistani heritage criminal gangs between 1997 and 2013.

A report commissioned by the council was published on Tuesday and revealed the massive level of abuse in Rotherham.

The inquiry team noted fears among council staff of being labelled "racist" if they focused on victims' descriptions of the majority of abusers as "Asian" men.
