    Does seem to me that there is an industry writing reports, as writing reports does not lead to convictions.

    The number of reports, just on Lambeth, suggests hundreds if not thousands of reports nationwide.

    A bit like the industry of Police Operations……

    • Yes, and the reports not only hidden and not previously widely available but various shades of whitewash. However it is the first stage of being able to see what the powers that be were up to. It is obvious that the authorities did not learn from the reports, partly because they were not widely available.

    Your local Guardian – 8th February 2010
    Council report reveals incidents of child abuse in Lambeth

    Dozens of allegations of child abuse carried out by people working for Lambeth Council were investigated in the last financial year.

    Some 30 allegations of sexual abuse, 82 involving physical abuse, 16 involving neglect, and eight involving emotional abuse were investigated by the council and police, according to a council report.

    Seven employees were fired, and 23 disciplined as a result.

    Details are contained in the Biannual Safeguarding Report, due to be discussed by Lambeth’s Children and Young People’s scrutiny committee on Tuesday.

    The allegations resulted in some 21 criminal investigations, and four people being handed a police caution.

    The majority of allegations, 54, were made in schools and other educational establishments.

    Some 18 involved foster carers, five residential care homes, and 11 the borough’s health services.

    The report states “robust processes are in place in respect of safer recruitment”.
