Rotherham child abuse scandal: What next for a council in limbo?
by Dan Johnson
A damning report into the Rotherham child sex abuse scandal branded the town's council "not fit for purpose". Its leader has left and confidence in its ability to protect children remains low. Where does the town go from here?
Rotherham Council is in limbo. It is currently without a leader following the resignations in the wake of the Casey report's damning criticism.
It will take at least two weeks for the government to appoint its commissioners to take over and the council has admitted it needs help.
