'Bullying' to blame for Rotherham sex abuse crisis
A culture of male-dominated bullying at Rotherham Council contributed to the town's child sex abuse scandal, senior figures have said.
Professor Alexis Jay, whose report revealed 1,400 abuse cases were ignored, missed or overlooked in Rotherham, has said the macho environment made it difficult to tackle child abuse at the council.
At the same time new council leader Paul Lakin has admitted that bullying and inappropriate behaviour at the council was widespread.
