Further details of police failures identified in a report published later today into child-sex grooming rings in Rochdale have been leaked to The Guardian.
As well as a lack of resources and oversight, the newspaper understands from the report that untrained detectives were used to investigate child exploitation and "there was a recognition that there may have been discriminatory attitudes among police officers towards the victims".
"As a result, the review has been left with an incomplete and unsatisfactory picture of the involvement of the police in the routine child protection processes," the report concludes.
