NSPCC: 'Risk of ongoing abuse in all sport'

Staff at the NSPCC say they have referred over 860 calls to the police about abuse in football - three times as many as they did in the same time frame when the Jimmy Savile story broke.

The NSPCC’s lead on tackling sexual abuse Jon Brown tells the Today programme the staff are "staggered" by the number of calls and says it would be naive to assume the problem is not ongoing.
