Child sexual exploitation is an "affront to everyone" and political and cultural sensitivities should not get in the way of uncovering crimes, the home secretary has said. Amber Rudd said sexual predators were "not restricted to any single ethnic group, religion or community".

Eighteen people have been convicted of forcing girls in Newcastle to have sex. The convicted were mostly British-born, of Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Indian, Iraqi, Iranian and Turkish backgrounds.

Ms Rudd said: "This was an abhorrent case of sexual predators preying on young women and girls and I am pleased that they have been brought to justice."
