Sheffield Council was ‘complicit’ in allowing sex attacker Roger Dodds to groom teenagers and young men, according to a damning report into his abuse.

Dodds, who was jailed in February after admitting a series of sex attacks on five people dating back to the 1980s, created an environment ‘within which he could exploit his position of authority to pursue his sexual satisfaction’.

His actions caused ‘enormous distress’ to his victims according to the findings of Operation Klosters, a review the council commissioned after police began investigating Dodds in 2008 – and released to The Star yesterday.

Dodds was a sex tourist, ‘well known’ for his use of sexual language at the education department building in Leopold Street, and was part of a club that shared hardcore pornography on the internal mail system.
