Oxfordshire County Council leader Joanna Simons insists she will not step down despite apologising for failing to stop a group of vulnerable girls being exploited by a paedophile ring in Oxford.
"There is going to be an independent serious case review which will look at the actions of all the agencies concerned," she told BBC's Newsnight.
"My gut feeling is that I'm not going to resign because my determination is that we need to do all that we can to take action to stamp this out.
"These are devious crimes that are very complicated."
