Rotherham Council's interim chief executive says the authority accepts the damning criticism it faced in yesterday's inspection report.
Jan Ormondroyd said the report contained a "catalogue of cultural and system failings", and apologised for the "devastating impact that this has had on the lives of the people of Rotherham".
She added that the council needed a "move towards stability" and "the fresh start which [report author] Louise Casey and her team have called for".
We understand the impact of the current uncertainties around the future leadership and management of the Council on the people of Rotherham, and also on staff in the Council. I have written to the Department for Communities and Local Government, urging them to confirm urgently who the five Commissioners who will take over the running of the Council will be and to ensure they are in place as soon as possible.
