Independent Inquiry publishes report on child sexual exploitation by organised networks

This week, the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse published its report on child sexual exploitation by organised networks. The report found that children are being sexually exploited by networks in all parts of England and Wales. The Inquiry also found that extensive failures by local authorities, police forces and other public bodies mean they are struggling to keep pace with the changing nature of sexual exploitation of children by networks.

Antonia Benfield was instructed as Counsel to the Inquiry; Caoilfhionn Gallagher QC, Mary-Rachel McCabe and Keina Yoshida were instructed on behalf of the Centre for Women’s Justice.
