More and more children are being safeguarded in Stoke-on-Trent as part of a city council initiative to prevent child abuse.

A report to the council said that since July 2015, 149 people were arrested of suspicion of offences to do with child sexual exploitation in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent and 41 voluntary interviews were conducted where an arrest was not required.
