Rotherham police: 'We will discipline people guilty of wrongdoing'

The head of South Yorkshire police has said he is working to ensure mistakes made by officers are not repeated, after a report found widespread child sexual exploitation in Rotherham.

The Jay report revealed at least 1,400 children in the town were subjected to abuse between 1997 and 2013.

Chief Constable David Crompton said he wanted to reassure victims that crimes will be fully investigated.
