Lisa Nandy MP, Labour's Shadow Children and Young People's Minister, responding to the review of child sexual exploitation in Rochdale, said:

"Today’s review reveals the shocking extent to which exploited young girls were ignored when they asked for help from the authorities after enduring appalling abuse at the hands of adults.

"Now that the perpetrators are behind bars, the priority must be to ensure that in future young girls are not left at such serious risk of harm either in Rochdale, or anywhere else.

"This does not just include the police and social services. All agencies have a responsibility to work together to listen to children and keep them safe from harm."
