Rotherham child sex abuse victim: 'My life starts now'

One of the victims of Rotherham child sex abuser Arshid Hussain has spoken of her relief after he was found guilty.

"For me, my life starts now," she told the BBC's Dan Johnson.

The woman, who was abused from the age of 14, said her education and mental health had been affected.

The case represents the first successful prosecution of a gang in Rotherham since a 2014 report warned of as many as 1,400 victims of child sexual exploitation in the town.
