    Here is a comment written under The Star article:
    What would the true figures be if the principles of the Alexis Jay Report, followed by the use of the Louise Casey Report, as applied in Rotherham, were to be applied in Sheffield? In Rotherham, a figure of 1400 was given. Can we expect a much larger proportional number, per population, of abuses in Sheffield? Has the issue of child grooming ever been raised at Full Council in Sheffield?

    Dawn Copley says the reasons for the increased numbers is not clear. Has she looked at the names of the alleged rapists ! Might be a few clues there !
