Alan Billings is Labour’s candidate for the by-election for Police and Crime Commissioner for South Yorkshire taking place on 30 October 2014.
"My first priority will be to keep the police focussed on doing everything to ensure that all instances of child sexual exploitation in Rotherham are fully investigated with perpetrators brought to justice, officials held to account and victims fully supported. There must be no complacency but also no witch-hunting.
