  1. Bradford child sex abuse: Children 'remain unprotected'

    Some children in Bradford "remain unprotected" from sex exploitation, a new report says.

    An independent review of five cases in the Bradford district since 2001 has found that "children suffered abuse no child should have to experience".

    Abuse victim Fiona Goddard said the council and police had chances to "nip it in the bud" but "never did".

    The Bradford Partnership said it "fully accepts more needs to be done".

    The report was commissioned after nine men were jailed over the sexual exploitation of girls who had been in council care.
