The Home Office will not be launching a separate inquiry into the Telford abuse scandal.
A Sunday newspaper estimates up to 1,000 children were victims of child sexual exploitation over the last four decades in Telford - with some of those abused as young as 11-years-old.
Today the Home Office have said there will not be a separate inquiry into the Telford abuse scandal because there is already a national investigation.
The Home Office added that what has happened in Telford is a 'truly terrible case' of exploitation.
They have also increased resources to the National Crime Agency and invested £7.5 million in a Centre of Expertise.
West Mercia Police, Children's Services, Health leaders and to the Local Government Association have also said they are 'determined' to tackle the problem.
