Rotherham sex abuse scandal: Labour Party calls for its own Police and Crime Commissioner to resign
Shaun Wright, the Police and Crime Commissioner for South Yorkshire, should resign over the Rotherham child exploitation scandal, the Labour Party has said.
Mr Wright, a former Labour councillor, who was responsible for children's services in Rotherham between 2005 and 2010, has expressed regret over failings that allowed 1,400 children to be abused in the town, but has so far refused to stand down.
Elected as the Labour Party's PCC candidate in November 2012, he now has responsibility for the strategic management of the South Yorkshire Police force.
