Rotherham Child Abuse scandal: Prof John Drew to lead inquiry into South Yorkshire Police
A former chief executive of the Youth Justice Board is to lead an inquiry into South Yorkshire Police’s handling of reports of child sex abuse.
Professor John Drew has been appointed to examine whether the force’s culture, leadership and performance hindered proper investigation of allegations.
The review, expected to take three months, is due to start in September and will be made public in early 2016.
A report found 1,400 children were abused in Rotherham from 1997 to 2013.
