UKIP councillors have launched a campaign for justice for the victims of child sex abuse in the town.
Caven Vines, leader of the opposition on Rotherham Council, said: “We want justice for all the children that came forward and were let down by the authorities.
“We also want justice for all the victims who were too afraid to report the abuse they had to endure in silence. UKIP councillors will endeavour to hold any councillors, police officers or council employees to account for these disgraceful acts, if wrong doing or dereliction of duty is identified.
“UKIP Councillors invite all councillors, MPs for the Rotherham area and the relevant senior police officers, together with the Asian community, to join them in seeking justice.”
