The Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer, has said of new measures to overhaul the criminal justice system's approach to child sex abuse.
"It is a very difficult task, nobody's ever look at this and said it is easy. But we've absolutely got to tackle it. We need a national consensus".
Mr Starmer will announce the new plans later today.
