Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper has said that South Yorkshire Police Commissioner Shaun Wright ought to stand down, but stressed that reforms were needed too:
1,400 hundred children have been abused, the authorities let them down, that's why the leader of the council was right to resign, and why the Police and Crime Commissioner should also do so.
But this is not just about Rotherham. It's also about Oxfordshire, Rochdale, Jimmy Savile: too many cases where children aren't being listened to and reforms are needed.
She also called for the "child abuse inquiry to start urgently".
Children as young as 11 were raped by large groups of men, a new inquiry into child sexual exploitation in Rotherham has found.
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.
