Councillors and police ‘had sex’ with Rotherham abuse victims

Councillors and police ‘had sex’ with Rotherham abuse victims, by UK News from 2015.

Two local councillors, one of whom is still serving, and a police officer have been accused of having sex with victims involved in the Rotherham child abuse scandal. …

The findings make uncomfortable reading for councillors in a town that has been at the centre of one of the country’s worst abuse scandals. The inquiry was set up to ascertain the extent of any cover-up and look at the treatment of whistleblowers by Rotherham following last year’s damning report .

It discovered a culture of bullying, sexism, suppression and misplaced “political correctness” and a “deep-rooted” culture of cover-ups, reports the BBC. …

Girls as young as 11-years old suffered rape by multiple attackers, trafficking across the North East, abductions, beatings and intimidation. The reports found that councillors and police officers were aware of the abuse, but chose to “disbelieve, suppress or ignore” it.

But it is Tommy Robinson who is sent to jail.
