Police identify ‘hundreds’ of Rotherham child sex offenders

About 300 potential offenders have been identified in an investigation into child sex abuse in Rotherham, the National Crime Agency (NCA) has said.

The inquiry, named Operation Stovewood, began last December in the wake of the Jay report which estimated there were 1400 victims of abuse in the town between 1997 and 2013.

Police said that estimate “remains a very good assessment”.

The NCA said it expected to expand its inquiry over the next few weeks.

NCA senior investigating officer Steve Baldwin said more than 3,300 lines of inquiry had been identified by Operation Stovewood and other investigations under the agency’s leadership.

    • Now she’s admitted that they are a problem with the Pakistani community belatedly, let’s see who will be next to dump on their former friends. Maybe Barron and Healy, will a sense of guilt and relieve themselves of this burden they’ve been carrying since 1997. Hey the Rotherham Labour Party might admit guilt too?

      • @FX 1400++ abused children, 300 and counting Pakistani criminals walking about Rotherham. Sarah Champion was an irrelevance when she arrived, she will be when she leaves. But the pain of the victims and there families will be forever. But doesn’t it say it all about the good voters of Rotherham, they voted for a party that cover up for such criminals .
