Rotherham child sexual abuse scandal is tip of iceberg, says police chief
There will be more Rotherham-style child sexual exploitation scandals unearthed in the coming months as the "stone is lifted" on the scale of abuse perpetrated on the young, one of Britain's top police officers has warned.
In an interview with the Guardian, Simon Bailey, chief constable of Norfolk police, who is the leading officer concerned with child abuse within the Association of Chief Police Officers, said that sex crimes involving children had for "too long been a hidden crime".
He also sparked a clash with fellow professionals by calling on teachers and doctors to take on more responsibility over detecting signs of abuse.
