Rotherham PC ‘failed to act on abuse case’

From the BBC:

Rotherham PC ‘failed to act on abuse case’

A police officer called to a child abuse case in Rotherham failed to investigate it, a victim has said.

PC Hassan Ali, who died this year, is said to have failed to get a statement from the victim or her mother.

An independent report last year found 1,400 children had been abused in the town between 1997 and 2013.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission is investigating at least 42 South Yorkshire officers over alleged failures in dealing with the cases.

The men who abused 12-year-old Lisa (not her real name) boasted that they would not be investigated.

  1. Labour councillors/MP have been asked for their involvement
    The police were told but are said to have not acted…
    But where were the social workers – why are they no longer mention in this/other posts
    Surely it’s their job to protect families and children…
