Sarah raises plight of Rotherham victims with Prime Minister


Rotherham's Member of Parliament, Sarah Champion, has made an impassioned plea to the Prime Minister to heed the findings of Alexis Jay's recent report into child sexual exploitation in Rotherham. Sarah told David Cameron that the widespread abuses that took place in Rotherham between 1997 and 2013 should never have been allowed to happen, and encouraged him to move quickly to get the Government's overarching child abuse inquiry underway. Speaking at Prime Minister's Question Time, Sarah said: The horrific, vile and disgusting abuse suffered by children in my constituency should never have been allowed to happen. The victims still have not got the support they deserve and the criminals are still on the street. Child sexual exploitation is not only a Rotherham issue, but a national issue, so when will the Prime Minister appoint the chair to his inquiry into child abuse so that no child will be let down by statutory agencies again?
