A major campaign to crack down on child sexual exploitation has been launched in Rotherham today.

A pregnant British teacher and actor who died when her car was hit by a 200-tonne train on a level crossing in Australia clearly did not see the warning lights and bells, a coroner has concluded.
South Yorkshire assistant deputy coroner Julian Fox delivered a narrative verdict at the end of the inquest into the death of Kay Stanley, 32, who was originally from Rotherham.
Miss Stanley was driving her 37-year-old Volkswagen Beetle in the town of Tyabb, south of Melbourne, when the vehicle was hit by the train which pushed her vehicle 560ft down the line before crushing it against a platform.
She was three months pregnant at the time of the incident in January 2008 and had been planning to marry Australian Brett Vogel two months after.
Mr Fox said his conclusion was that the crossing warning lights were working at the time of the accident, and minor infringements of regulations with some signs at the crossing did not contribute to Miss Stanley's death.
The inquest in Sheffield comes after a five-year campaign by Miss Stanley's mother, Gwen Bates, from Rotherham, who has never accepted that her daughter would have driven on to the line with the warning lights flashing.

Humberside police are appealing for help to identify a man who suffers from a disorder which can cause memory loss.
The man, who had been sleeping rough in the Cleethorpes area around September 2013, says he is called David Thorpe and his date of birth is 5 October 1955, but officers have so far been unable to confirm it.
He says he maybe from the Rotherham area but may also have connections in Blackpool. Police say he is not wanted for any criminal offences and does not sit begging on the streets.
"This is a very rare case in which somebody will come to an area and have no idea who they are and if they have any family. We have not been able to establish how the man came to stop in North East Lincolnshire, however we are doing all we can to help him find his family and friends.
"Anyone who may think they can help this man find out who he is should call Humberside Police. We want to do all we can to help him but we can't do that if somebody does not come forward to tell us who he is."
