Letter - Those responsible in abuse scandal must be held to account

Share this article

It’s a disgrace that this sort of child sex scandal has been going on for years in Rotherham. Children from 11 years upwards have been not to tell anyone or they could be doused in petrol.

This trafficking of children must stop now and the government must take immediate action.

More than 1,000 complaints have been made to the authorities in Rotherham and yet everybody concerned has turned a blind eye to the situation or completely ignored it, hoping it would go away.

It makes me sick and very angry that this is happening in our towns and cities. Colin Ross, leader of Sheffield Council’s Liberal Democrat group, said: “Lessons must be learnt and those responsible must be held to account.”
