A row erupted in court today as 12 men charged in the investigation into child sex abuse in Rotherham appeared in court.

The group of Asian men are facing a total of 44 offences with 10 men pleading not guilty to a range of charges at Sheffield Crown Court.

But the hearing was interrupted when some of the defendants pointed towards three men in the public gallery and claimed they were being filmed.
