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.

Child victims of sexual exploitation could be helped with a new project introduced by Staffordshire Police, which is thought to be the first of its kind in the country.

The Child Sexual Abuse Outcome-led Framework, which was created after agencies met with victims and their parents, will see organisations sharing information in an effort to better tackle the problem of child sexual exploitation.
