MPs probe Rochdale case
MPs are set to question those closely involved with the recent jailing of nine men in Rochdale for sexual offences against young girls.
The Home Affairs Committee will look at the sexual exploitation of children through "localised grooming" drawing on the lessons learnt from the case.
The head of Rochdale Council and Greater Manchester Police’s senior policeman will give evidence to MPs.
The Committee Chair, Keith Vaz, said “It is vital that we know the truth about why these abuses took place and that we have robust measures to guard against them.”
The Telegraph reported today that Chief Crown Prosecutor Nazir Afzal said grooming of white women was a "particular problem" in Asian communities.
The hearing will take place next week.
