Summary: 

Councillors in Rotherham were told about the abuse and rape of children in the northern town at a seminar almost a decade ago but were told to keep it “confidential” to avoid jeopardising police investigations, it emerged yesterday. The disclosure came at an angry council meeting in Rotherham when a member of the public questioned why councillors had failed to act on information about child sexual exploitation.  published last week found that 1,400 children had been sexually abused over a 16-year period.
