A third man was arrested in Rotherham yesterday as part of an investigation into child sexual exploitation in the town.

The National Crime Agency made two arrests yesterday morning and then a third in the afternoon.

All three men have been arrested on suspicion of indecently assaulting a girl under 16.

They were arrested as part of Operation Stovewood - an investigation into child sexual exploitation in Rotherham between 1997 and 2013.

The operation was launched after a report into child sexual exploitation in Rotherham established that around 1,400 children had been abused between 1997 and 2013 while those in authority failed to act.
