Sheffield Council bosses said today they will be going through the Rotherham child sex abuse report with a ‘fine toothcomb’ after it highlighted cases of victims being trafficked to the city.

The council said it has been recognised nationally for its ‘good work’ on child sexual exploitation, but was not complacent about the scale of the problem.

But the council has refused to comment specifically on the tenure of former children’s services boss Sonia Sharp, who worked for Sheffield for four years between 2008 and 2012 after being employed previously in Rotherham from 2005 to 2008.
