Furious Public Demand Rotherham Abuse Answers
Members of the public have shouted and jeered at Rotherham councillors during a meeting to discuss last week's damning report about child sexual abuse.
Dozens of people packed into a small chamber at the Town Hall, with one man demanding to know why they didn't act after a seminar about exploitation in 2005.
One woman received applause after she shouted: "We are very angry and we don't know why all of you haven't resigned."
Three attendees walked out of the public gallery as the council's chief executive, Martin Kimber, began making a formal statement to fellow councillors.
"There is no one more determined than me to ensure that people who commit vile criminal acts are brought to justice."
But one victim of child sexual abuse in Rotherham, who was raped repeatedly over the course of three years as a teenager, has claimed the council does not care about those affected.
She told Sky News: "What's an apology going to solve? That's not going to change what happened to those girls, it's not going to change what happened to me, and it's not going to change what happened to kids in the future.
"They're just bothered about getting a pay rise."
The gathering came as the Police and Crime Commissioner at the heart of the scandal, Shaun Wright, faced a motion of no confidence at Sheffield City Council this afternoon.
The urgent item of business stated that councillors believed Mr Wright "no longer has the confidence of the public", and demanded that he "resign with immediate effect".
Lib Dem Councillor Colin Ross said: "Sheffield City Council needs to show that it takes its responsibility to protect vulnerable young people extremely seriously.
"If this vote goes through, I do not see how Shaun Wright can remain in post. His position will be untenable."
But Mr Wright, who did not take heed of calls to stand down last week from the Prime Minister and Home Secretary, has insisted that the failings in Rotherham were "not about one person or one organisation".
The leader of Rotherham Council, Roger Stone, is the only person to have resigned since Professor Alexis Jay outlined how at least 1,400 children were sexually exploited over a 16-year period.
On Tuesday, the Chief Constable of South Yorkshire Police, David Crompton, confirmed that 12 more victims had come forward since the report was published last week.
An independent inquiry into the force's handling of sex abuse complaints has been announced, and Mr Wright has agreed to give evidence.
