The Rotherham scandal was systematic rape, gang rape and torture of white English girls by Pakistani men over more than a decade. There have been dozens of similar cases reported across the UK.
The headteacher of five academy schools in Kent has said they will stop taking children in care from outside the county to avoid a “Rotherham-style” abuse scandal.
Paul Luxmoore, executive headteacher of the Coastal Academies Trust in Thanet, says hundreds of youngsters are being sent to one of the most deprived areas in the country and are left “vulnerable and unsafe”.
Having spoken out about the problem for more than a decade, Mr Luxmoore has now taken the decision to resist attempts to place relocated children from care backgrounds in London at his schools.
