Child abuse revelations divide "most shameful town in Britain"

ROTHERHAM England (Reuters) - Swapping cigarettes and chewing gum, the teenage girls outside Rotherham's Centenary Indoor Market are not engrossed in the conversations students should be having on the first day of term. Instead of timetables and summer gossip, theirs is a new school year dominated by revelations that as many as 1,400 children in this northern English town were sexually abused by gangs of predominantly Asian men over a 16-year period. An independent report last week exposed the scale and graphic nature of the crimes and raised difficult questions about whether timidity about confronting the racial aspects of the abuse had prompted authorities to turn a blind eye #facebook #United States #India #Business #Japan #Technology #Middle East #Russia #markets #Italy #Entertainment #british

London police put their Scotland Yard HQ up for sale

LONDON (Reuters) - London's cash-strapped police force put its New Scotland Yard headquarters up for sale on Tuesday with a 250 million pound ($415 million) guide price, as part of plans to re-invest in front-line policing and cut costs.
