Child sexual abuse has long been an issue in West Yorkshire.

A damning review was released this summer into child sexual exploitation and child safeguarding practices across the Bradford district over the last 17 years – identifying five victims – with the report saying that some children still remain at risk.

But a local MP is stressing that more needs to be done to reflect the true number of children that have been abused in the area, to look at the handling of child-sexual-exploitation reports by Bradford Council, West Yorkshire Police and other agencies, to avoid these crimes happening again.
