Rotherham MP urges stronger child sexual exploitation laws

In the next few minutes the Rotherham MP Sarah Champion will speak in Westminster to call on the government to tighten up laws on child sexual exploitation.

A joint report by the MP and the Barnados children's charity says it should be made easier for police to intervene more quickly in cases where children are at risk. It also recommends giving specialist training to judges and lawyers involved in child grooming cases.
