Rotherham Council says it needs time to "understand and respond" to today's damning report, as well as the "implications" of its cabinet's resignation and the intervention package proposed by Eric Pickles.
In a statement, a spokesman for the council said: “We recognise the need for a fresh start that is so clearly identified in the report, but also appreciate that we need to continue to deliver services to the people of Rotherham, and ensure business continuity.
“We should not forget that the publication of this report will re-open old wounds for the victims and survivors of CSE. We will continue to put in place the help and support they need at this difficult time, including our dedicated helpline.”
