Rotherham Child Grooming

This week I've been at Westminster to help cover the fallout of the Rotherham child grooming report which found at least 1,400 children were sexually assaulted in the town over a 16 year period. I went to the Home Affairs Select Committee meeting chaired by Keith Vaz MP and have never experienced such a devastating cross-examination. The committee were entirely unconvinced by the evidence given by Shaun Wright (Police and Crime Commissioner), Joyce Thacker (Head of Children's Services in Rotherham) and Med Hughes (former Chief Constable).
