The National Crime Agency will investigate outstanding allegations of child sexual exploitation in Rotherham, it was announced today.

The body will look into currently unresolved cases in the wake of the Alexis Jay report which revealed there were at least 1,400 victims of child sex abuse in Rotherham between 1997 and 2013.

A statement issued by the NCA said: “David Crompton, Chief Constable of South Yorkshire Police, has requested that the NCA hosts an independent investigation into outstanding allegations of child sexual exploitation in Rotherham, raised in the Independent inquiry by Alexis Jay.

“Trevor Pearce, NCA Director of Investigations, has agreed to lead this investigation, and is now working to draw up detailed terms of reference.”
