MacShane calls for independent inquiry into sex grooming
"Call for action: Denis MacShane
ROTHERHAM MP Denis MacShane has welcomed re-assurances from South Yorkshire Police that they are to put extra resources into tackling allegations of child sex abuse in the town.
Rotherham has been at the centre of allegations in the national media this week of inaction over the grooming of young girls for sex by groups of older men.
South Yorkshire Police says it is taking the issue very seriously and has several live investigations under way.
And Dr MacShane says he has been heartened by the force’s reaction to the scandal."
