Rotherham council boss to face MPs over child sex grooming scandal

ROTHERHAM Borough Council boss Martin Kimber is awaiting an official summons to give evidence about child sex grooming to MPs investigating the issues.

Keith Vaz, chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee has said on Twitter that Mr Kimber, the council’s chief executive, and his predecessor, Mike Cuff, will be asked to appear before the committee to be quizzed about the sexual exploitation of children in the town.

A council spokesman said: “We are aware of Mr Vaz’s comments on Twitter but as yet we have not received a request to attend a Select Committee hearing.

“We will, of course, be happy to assist Mr Vaz and his committee with their enquiries into this very important issue so we can outline the work which is being done in Rotherham to help tackle sexual exploitation.”
