Council-led safeguarding hub helps smash child sex abuse ring

Newcastle City Council formed its Sexual Exploitation Hub in April 2015 in response to the launch of Northumbria Police's anti-child sexual exploitation initiative Operation Sanctuary.

The hub's team offered support to the victims of the abusers and helped gather the evidence that led to 18 people being convicted on Wednesday of various crimes including child rape, inciting prostitution for gain, human trafficking, digital penetration and supplying drugs.
