Rotherham child sex abuse scandal “may have more than 1,500 victims”

THE scale of child sex abuse in Rotherham may have been underestimated in the report which lifted the lid on the scandal, it was claimed today.

As part of the latest update on Operation Stovewood, its investigation into allegations of abuse over the 16-year period, the NCA said “our analysis puts the potential number of victims and survivors at 1,510”.
