1,400 Rotherham children sexually abused in 16 years: Report


‘An investigation reveals that at least 1,400 children as young as 11 years of age were subjected to ‘appalling’ sexual exploitation in England’s town of Rotherham during a 16-year time period.
According to an independent probe by Professor Alexis Jay, the children were victims of gang rape and other forms of abuse from 1997 to 2013.
‘No one knows the true scale of child sexual exploitation in Rotherham over the years. Our conservative estimate is that approximately 1,400 children were sexually exploited over the full inquiry period, from 1997 to 2013,’ Jay said.’

Using the assumed name Emma Jackson, she told BBC Radio 5 Live that she had been abused from the age of 13.’

Particularly shameful was the silence of police, councillors and senior social workers. For crucial information about the crimes that had been given to the authorities — often by parents frantic about their daughters going missing or turning up drunk and dishevelled late at night — was either suppressed or ignored.
And so the brutal street-grooming and sexual abuse went on for 16 years. One girl quoted in the report says she thought ‘gang-rape was a usual part of growing up’.’
