Council boss claims she was forced out after raising concerns about suspected child sexual exploitation

COUNCIL boss has claimed she was forced out after raising concerns about suspected grooming and sexual exploitation of underage girls.

Maggie Siviter, a former child safeguarding lead at North Somerset Council, claimed that authorities failed to act after she warned that licensed premises were suspected of being used to groom vulnerable young girls.

Speaking at her employment tribunal, she said she was “mindful” of the situation that emerged in Rotherham, where child sex abuse by predominantly British-Pakistani men continued for years, unchallenged by authorities.
