Victims of child sexual abuse in Rotherhamare set to take South Yorkshire police to court to force them to hand over confidential records on how they handled decades of abuse in the town.

 

A Sheffield lawyer, acting for 65 victims, has said he has no other choice as the force is refusing to disclose data, call logs and other documentation that could establish if allegations that officers turned a blind eye to grooming in the town were true.

 

David Greenwood believes if he can prove this is so, the girls, now women in their 30s and 40s, will have a case under Article 3 of the Human Rights Act, which protects against torture but also “inhuman or degrading treatment”.
