South Yorkshire Police ‘failings’ were ‘laid bare’ by the child sexual exploitation scandal in Rotherham, police Chief Constable David Crompton admitted today.

The Jay report revealed at least 1,400 children in the town were subjected to ‘appalling’ abuse between 1997 and 2013.

South Yorkshire Police’s Chief Constable David Crompton has called a meeting with the report’s author Professor Alexis Jay to discuss the findings which he said made for ‘painful reading’.
