Letter: Council apologises for failing to stop historical child abuse at Knowl View and Cambridge House

Date published: 19 September 2017

Dear Editor,

Just when I thought Rochdale has seen the end of child abuse I found this article so distressing to read.

Who were the politicians in charge at the relevant time and what on Earth were they doing whilst this abuse was going on?

My thoughts are with those vulnerable young children.

One wonders how many were affected and for how long.

You also cannot stop thinking what consequences they perhaps still feel today.
