  1. Now we are hearing first hand how woeful the SYP have acted over the years to reports of CSE in Rotherham maybe it is time for Crofton to go ? He has stated that he would not stand down as he is turning the cops round and doing a better job at investigating the CSE problem within the town, I think he may find himself in the sights of the NCA shortly ??
