‘Bombshell files which revealed the scale of child sex abuse in Rotherham over a decade ago have disappeared from council offices, a town hall chief has revealed.
Rotherham Council’s chief executive Martin Kimber told MPs he cannot locate three vital reports into child sex abuse despite “extensive” searches.
“I still have not seen the 2002 report, even though I made extensive inquiries,” he told the Commons local government committee.
“The 2003 report I have never seen at all. I made extensive inquiries. The 2006 report I saw for the first time on Sunday evening.
“They are not in the council’s archives.”
The revelation files have gone missing will add to MPs’ fears that the scale of abuse in Rotherham was covered up by council and police officials.
Last month’s damning investigation by Professor Alexis Jay, which revealed at least 1,400 girls were abused over 15 years, told how the key reports had been repeatedly ignored by the council.’
