Further arrests over Rotherham child sex abuse

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of historical sexual offences against underage girls.

The arrests were part of an investigation into allegations of child sexual exploitation in Rotherham, South Yorkshire Police said.

The men, aged 36 and 37, were arrested in the Rotherham area, the force said.

Three men, aged 35, 38 and 39, were held in Goole, East Yorkshire, in November as part of the same inquiry. They remain on police bail.

The allegations date to a period between 1990 and 2001.
