"The head of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (Ceop) Centre has warned that the sexual exploitation of children is "far more prevalent than people realise".

Peter Davies said it was a "largely hidden type of crime of victimisation", and urged local agencies to work together to look for signs of child sexual exploitation.

Mr Davies, who is also the Association of Chief Police Officers lead adviser for child protection, was speaking to the Education Committee, which is carrying out an inquiry into the child protection system in England.

He told the panel of MPs on 16 May 2012 that there was a "major issue nationally" - not restricted to the police service - that indicators of child sexual exploitation were not picked up, but stressed that work was ongoing to improve the situation."
