Marshall inquiry: Child sexual exploitation a 'growing threat'

Child sexual exploitation is a "growing threat" to young people in Northern Ireland, an inquiry has found.

The Marshall inquiry also said it heard that individuals with links to paramilitary groups may have abused children.

The inquiry was commissioned last year after it emerged police had identified 22 people, aged between 13 and 18, who may have been sexually exploited.

Health Minister Jim Wells outlined the reports findings at Stormont.
