NUMBER OF VICTIMS OF ROTHERHAM SEX ABUSE APPEARS TO BE EVEN HIGHER


On Tuesday, NCA senior investigating for Operation Stovewood officer Paul Williamson said his team’s analysis suggests there are 1,510 potential victims and survivors of CSE in the town between 1997 and 2013 – the same timescale as covered by the Jay Report. Of these, at least 1,300 are female, he said.  Mr Williamson said his team was now actively engaged with more than 260 victims, had identified 110 “designated suspects” and currently involves 144 officers working on 34 distinct investigations.  He said he is hoping to increase his team – which currently has a £6.9 million annual budget – to between 200 and 250 people.
