Government removes commissioners from Rotherham council three years after child sex abuse scandal, minister announces

23 July 2018 – Independent

The Government is set to finish its intervention into Rotherham council three years after it was severely criticised for “significant failings” which contributed to child sexual exploitation.

In a written ministerial statement the communities secretary, James Brokenshire, said he wanted to return control of all services to the council, including children’s social care.

He also will be withdrawing all three commissioners – all on the condition the council is independently renewed before the end of March next year.
