A police operation found hotels in South Yorkshire are still allowing men to check into rooms with teenage girls despite the child sexual exploitation scandal.
Hotels across the county have received training on how to spot the signs of potential child sexual exploitation, but spot checks last week found some in Rotherham, Barnsley and Doncaster still willing to take bookings from men attempting to check in with teenage girls.
Undercover police officers and teenage cadets attempted to book into five hotels in Sheffield but on each occasion staff refused to check them in.
Hotels given further training after failing to spot the signs of CSE
TWO out of eight hotels in Rotherham failed to flag CSE concerns during undercover police tests.
The targeted operation involved an adult male, played by an officer, trying to book a room with a teenage girl, played by a cadet.
It followed hotel staff across the county being among businesses given the internationally recognised Operation Makesafe training package.
South Yorkshire Police said the two venues in Rotherham which did not report concerns during the tests were given a debrief and more training was arranged.
