Stovewood is the NCA’s long-running investigation into child sexual abuse in Rotherham between 1997 and 2013. Victims can still get in touch.

Senior investigating officer Philip Marshall said: “Operation Stovewood remains a unique and complex investigation, but we continue to seek to bring offenders to justice and focus on supporting the victims.”
