Police involved in a major investigation into the Rotherham child abuse scandal have made their first arrest.
Officers from the National Crime Agency – the so-called 'British FBI' – are questioning a man on suspicion of rape, assault and supplying class A and B drugs. All the allegations relate to a girl aged under 16.
The NCA was drafted in to lead an investigation into widespread child sexual exploitation in Rotherham after a report by Prof Alexis Jay found at least 1,400 girls were abused between 1997 and 2013 in the town.
Earlier this week the NCA said it had recorded 91 crimes and identified 29 suspects but was looking at hundreds of other potential perpetrators.
