Police officers are under investigation for allegedly sexually abusing children, South Yorkshire’s Chief Constable has revealed.

Stephen Watson disclosed this week that a number of police officers are the subject of probes by the Independent Police Complaints Commission into allegations that they abused children in Rotherham.
