Police in Skipton are stepping up their efforts to tackle child sexual exploitation.

After a number of high-profile cases in places such as Rotherham and Rochdale, officers say they want to stop young people being groomed and sexually abused in Craven.

They're working with schools and other organisations to raise awareness of the issue.

Sergeant Paul Evans told Stray FM that education is key and has also warned that offenders may start to look to more rural areas.
