Rotherham Council commissioners to cost around £300,000 per year
Rotherham’s team of Government-appointed commissioners are to cost taxpayers £300,000 per year – but promise to provide ‘value for money’ to the town.
The five commissioners were brought in as a result of the town’s grooming scandal and are due to be in post until March 2019.
Police aim to end modern slavery
MODERN slavery is being targeted in a new campaign by South Yorkshire Police.
Police say they want to put an end to the crime which saw 11 cases reported in the county last year.
The campaign coincides with the new Modern Slavery Act 2015 and will see a series of posters highlight the ways in which slavery exists – domestic servitude, forced labour, sexual exploitation and criminal activity.
