A ROTHERHAM child abuse survivor has praised the BBC’s drama series Three Girls which shines a spotlight on the Rochdale grooming scandal.
The three-part series, which concludes tonight, tells the real-life story of a sexual health worker’s battle with the police and authorities to bring gangs of Asian men, who were exploiting young white girls in the North West town, to justice.
Maxine Peake plays determined sexual health worker Sara Rowbotham, who’s damning evidence helped convict nine Rochdale men of multiple child abuse offences in 2012 — nearly a decade after she had first presented it to the authorities.
Rochdale’s problems are not over it would appear?
