To judge a society, examine how its most vulnerable are treated. That seems like a truism but it bears repeating. It is the reason why child abuse is so disturbing.

Sexual abuse and exploitation of children are crimes the scale of which seems enormous. From the Rotherham scandal to abuse in the Catholic church (see the oscar-winning film Spotlight), no place or demographic is immune.
Hackney is no different. Some will recall the Mark Trotter scandal. He was a social worker and political activist who was about to be arrested by police over allegations of sex abuse when he died of an AIDS-related illness in 1995.
It is thought he abused several children in his care during his career in Hackney from 1981 to 1993.
