Sex abuse witness spoke out ‘to expose police lies’

A witness in the Rotherham sex-grooming trial told a jury yesterday that she chose to reveal her childhood abuse by Asian men because she wanted such crimes to be no longer “swept under the carpet” by the authorities.

She said that she had initially agreed to be interviewed in 2014 by a journalist from The Times because she knew that Shaun Wright, the South Yorkshire police and crime commissioner at the time, “was lying” when he said that he “knew nothing about it”.

“I wanted people to know he was lying,” she said.
