    Child sexual exploitation has become the "social norm" in some areas of Greater Manchester, according to a report into the 2012 'sexual grooming' scandal in the UK town of Rochdale.

    The Coffey report says the exploitation will continue unless the cultural attitudes which made it possible in the first place are challenged.
