South Yorkshire Police are currently conducting investigations relating to child sexual exploitation in Rotherham. As these are ongoing it would be inappropriate to make further comment. The Crown Prosecution Service will consider all potential offences referred to it by the police in accordance with the two-stage test set out in the Code for Crown Prosecutors.
