INVESTIGATION: Councils spend £10m to silence child sex claims

English councils have shelled out millions to settle historic child sex claims from victims who were abused when they were in the care of the state.

Authorities have cumulatively racked up a legal bill of over £10 million to settle claims from victims of child sexual exploitation who were abused while living in children’s homes.

The figures are revealed in a series of Freedom of Information requests to all English councils, which revealed the councils who have paid most – and others who are subject to huge police investigations and have held back from giving compensation to victims.
