There will be "many more" Rotherham-style child sex abuse cases uncovered in the coming months, a leading police officer has said.
Sex crimes involving children have for “too long been a hidden crime,” Norfolk Police Chief Constable Simon Bailey told the Guardian, as he suggested the Rotherham abuse scandal was the tip of the iceberg.
Mr Bailey, the national lead officer for the child protection and abuse investigation, warned that the scale of the problem was far larger than previously thought.
“We don’t know for sure. But I think it’s tens of thousands of victims [a year] of an appalling crime,” he added.

Police are looking for a man who tried to hold up a bank in an affluent area of Norfolk yesterday afternoon, in what was described as an "unusual incident".
The suspect, who Norfolk Police believes could be in his 60s or 70s, threatened staff at a branch of TSB in Holt with what appeared to be a firearm.
The cashier refused to give the man any money and he left empty-handed.
Detective Inspector Graeme Talbot said: "No staff member was hurt but they were obviously surprised and upset by what happened.
"This was an unusual and isolated incident which was over very quickly but it is important we identify this individual at the earliest opportunity."

Shooter Michael Gault's bid to become the outright most successful Commonwealth athlete of all time is over after he missed out on a place in the final of the 50m air pistol.
Competing at his sixth Games, the 60-year-old Norfolk grandfather drew level with fellow shooter Phillip Adams on Saturday when he won his 18th medal, taking bronze in the 10m discipline.
Afterwards Gault said he had achieved what he came out of retirement for, and that he would be "chillaxing" when he stepped back on to the range for today's event.
But despite shooting a competitive total of 529 from his six rounds, Gault bowed out of the competition in 13th place.
Norfolk Police said a man was pronounced dead at the scene after falling into a grain silo.
