I said earlier in the year that not all of my battles take place on the race track. In February 2014, I made a public call for the historic Leicestershire child sex abuse cases to be reviewed.
I’m pleased to report that in September 2014, Leicestershire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Sir Clive Loader, has announced that, in 2015, his force will carry out a full review of historic child abuse cases.
I’ve also been informed that Leicestershire Constabulary has now called in the IPCC to formally investigate potential wrong-doing by police officers. Whilst it would be wrong to jump to any conclusions about the outcome, I’m happy that Kids for Cash UK has played a small part in moving things along.
