South Yorkshire PCC Shaun Wright finally resigns in the wake of the Rotherham child sex abuse scandal
Shaun Wright, the Police and Crime Commissioner for South Yorkshire, has resigned in the wake of the Rotherham child sex exploitation scandal.
Mr Wright had come under increasing pressure following the publication of Professor Alexis Jay's report into child sexual exploitation in Rotherham. He was the councillor with responsibility for children's services in the borough from 2005 to 2010.
But he initially resisted calls to resign including from the Prime Minister, Home Secretary and the Labour party, which eventually expelled him.
