Birmingham City Council finds 132 children at risk of abuse

At least 132 children in Birmingham are suffering or are vulnerable to sexual exploitation, a report has revealed.

The findings were published after a year-long investigation by a city council committee.

The report said children in care or involved in gangs were among those most at risk of being exploited.

As BBC Midlands Today's Bob Hockenhull reports, the city council wants taxi drivers, licensees and hoteliers to be its "eyes and ears" as it combats sexual exploitation.
