Rotherham: 12 more child sex abuse victims come forward
Twelve more victims of child sexual abuse in Rotherham have come forward in the past week since the publication of a damning report disclosing the grooming, exploitation and rape of at least 1,400 young people.
South Yorkshire Ch Con David Crompton told MPs the new victims had emerged as he confirmed his force is handling nine more "multiple victim, multiple offender" investigations covering hundreds of victims, including two in Rotherham.
In a preliminary appearance before the Commons home affairs select committee, Crompton said the specialist team dealing with child sex abuse cases had been expanded from three officers in 2010 to eight in 2012 and 62 now.
