Labour trio sue Ukip MEP over Rotherham child sex claims
Rotherham's three Labour MPs are taking legal action against the UK Independence party MEP Jane Collins for saying that they knew about widespread child sex abuse in the city.
Sarah Champion, John Healey and Kevin Barron are suing Collins – who represents Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire in the European parliament – for libel and slander for accusations she made in her speech at last year's Ukip party conference.
The three MPs are also bringing libel proceedings against a Ukip councillor in Rotherham, Caven Vines, for remarks he made in an interview to Sky News on 5 January.
