Calls for better screening after Keighley's Danny Jones death

A minute's silence will be held at Rugby League matches this weekend as a mark of respect for Keighley's Wales international Danny Jones, who died of a suspected cardiac arrest during the Cougars' game on Sunday.

The death of the 29-year-old, a father of five month old twins - is the latest in a long line of similar tragedies, and has prompted renewed calls for the regular heart screening of Rugby League players.

South Yorkshire Child grooming ignored as it was 'seen as prostitution'

There have been fresh revelations about how police turned a blind eye to child sex abuse in Rotherham amid claims that the South Yorkshire force was more interested in tackling burglary and car crime.

The scandal went unchecked for more than a decade in spite of senior police officers being warned in two separate reports that there was a "very entrenched serious sexual exploitation problem".

Last year an inquiry found 1400 children children were abused. The South Yorkshire force has admitted to past failings and said it has made "significant progress" but understands more needs to be done.
