Fury as Rotherham council boss refuses to say sorry to child abuse victims: Deputy leader shouts 'absolutely not' when asked if he wants to apologise
by James Tozer, Jaya Narain and Mario Ledwith
The former deputy leader of the shamed Labour council that failed to protect generations of children from sexual abuse last night flatly refused to apologise to the victims.
There was growing outrage over the failures by Rotherham council, which turned a blind eye while Pakistani grooming gangs sexually preyed on an estimated 2,000 girls.
As it emerged that a string of those responsible have gone on to lucrative jobs at other councils – some in charge of safeguarding children – the Labour former deputy council leader Jahangir Akhtar was asked if he wanted to apologise to the victims of sexual abuse.
