Joyce Thacker has been given the pay-off as she was named as one of the people singled out for criticism in a new report into the child sex abuse scandal


Shamed former Rotherham children's services boss Joyce Thacker has received a £40,000 pay-off.

The revelation comes as Mrs Thacker is among key figures in the town's child sex abuse scandal singled out for criticism in a new report.

Mrs Thacker agreed the five-figure sum as a pay-off for leaving her £130,000 per year job, which took immediate effect last month.

Furious abuse victims said Mrs Thacker should donate her pay-off to the Rotherham Women's Counselling Service.

For all our faults, the UK is far from a third world country. Still a fine country with good people.

And frankly, we can still equally look at your nation and shudder at times.
