The letter was to Home Secretary Amber Rudd in September 2016 and followed an independent review in 2013 into CSE commissioned by the Council and an OFSTED inspection of Children’s Services in 2016. OFSTED said after their inspection: "“Work with children and young people at risk of sexual exploitation is very strong. The local authority has been a champion for tackling this issue. "
