Sheffield officers investigating child grooming 'told to wind necks in' by bosses
by Chris Burn
Police officers investigating child sexual exploitation in Sheffield were told to 'wind your necks in' by bosses after warning about the scale of the problem, a retired detective has claimed.
A BBC investigation has alleged that senior officers thought car crime, burglary and robbery were bigger priorities than child sexual exploitation, despite detectives in the city warning it was a major problem.
Retired detective Tony Brookes, who spent 30 years with the force, worked on inquiries in 2007 which led to six abusers being convicted, and he wanted to build on the case as he recognised the size of the problem.
