Are white girls being singled out for sexual abuse?

Former Home Secretary Jack Straw has said he believes some Pakistani men in Britain see white girls as "easy meat" for sexual abuse.

Mr Straw was speaking to BBC Newsnight after two Asian men who abused teenage girls in Derby were given indeterminate jail terms.

The Blackburn MP said there was a "specific problem" in some areas where men of Pakistani heritage "target vulnerable white girls".

Newsnight's Jackie Long has been looking at an issue rife with controversy and conflicting views.
