Begin prosecutions against those at Rotherham Council past and present responsible for covering up widespread child sexual abuse.

The Professor Jay report and the recent inquiry into widespread child sexual abuse and the failings of Rotherham Council has resulted in the mass resignation of the cabinet in Rotherham. Now we need justice. The people responsible for lack of action which has allowed thousands of girls in Rotherham to be groomed and raped cannot simply resign and escape. Shaun Wright and Jahangir Akhtar (and others including Martin Kimber, Roger Stone and Joyce Thacker) must be properly investigated and prosecuted if found guilty of offences. This needs to happen urgently so that survivors see justice.
