We heard yesterday that about a third of the girls who were abused are thought to be in council care.
As I revealed back in May, 15 of those girls are joining together to take legal action against the council. They claim they should have had better care and have been better protected when they were in these local authority homes.
They insist that social workers who cared for them then knew what was going on, knew that they were in relationships with older men, but did nothing to prevent it.
There is of course a possibility they could get compensation if they are successful, but I have to say that all the girls I spoke to said that it wasn't money they were after. What they wanted were some words of regret and apology from the council.

A report into 16 years of child sexual abuse in Rotherham has concluded that the true scale of exploitation in the town will never be known.
