A serious case review will be held into historical child sex abuse (CSE) in Bradford. The chair of the city’s Safeguarding Children Board has said she will commission an independent person to conduct the review.

A case earlier this year saw nine men jailed for raping and abusing two teenage girls living in a children’s home in Bradford from 2008.
In a document seen by the BBC, Jane Booth said the inquiry would examine how agencies in Bradford had responded to CSE in the past and Bradford Council said it would be “keen” to receive the findings.

Ms Booth said she had made the decision to convene a “serious case review to look at how Bradford agencies have responded to CSE in the past” and this would be “informed by the experience of victims”. She added “We will hold agencies to account for the quality of the service they delivered and challenge them where their actions or inaction did not protect children”
