A man has been arrested on suspicion of raping a 13-year-old girl in Rotherham.

The 37-year-old, from Nottinghamshire, is being questioned by detectives about an allegation dating back to 2001.

He was arrested by South Yorkshire Police as part of Operation Clover, an investigation into child sexual exploitation in the town.

A man arrested as part of the same operation appeared in court earlier charged with 22 child sex offences against a girl under 16.
