Sex grooming gangs abused, raped and even killed young girls in the English town of Telford, according to a Sunday Mirror investigation.
They report that girls as young as 11 were targeted over a period of 40 years, with the scale of the abuse feared to be bigger than anything seen before in Britain.
Those working for the Council reportedly viewed some of the abused children as prostitutes, and there was the usual politically correct nonsense when it came to abusers who were Asian.
A female who was abused is quoted as saying: “I hated what was happening and my abusers made my skin crawl but I was told that if I said a word to anyone they’d come for my little sisters and tell my mum I was a prostitute.
“Night after night, I was forced to have sex with multiple men in disgusting takeaways and filthy houses. I must have been getting the morning after pill from a local clinic at least twice a week but no one asked any questions.
“I fell pregnant twice and had two abortions. Hours after my second termination, I was taken by one of my abusers to be raped by more men. The worst moment came just after my 16th birthday when I was drugged and gang raped by five men. Days later, the ringleader turned up at my house and told me he’d burn it down if I breathed a word of what had happened.”
How can we be seeing this industrial scale of abuse time and time again? There is something badly wrong in Britain when we hear about this this level of abuse time and time again. It needs to end and every single abuser needs to have the book thrown at them. Has this been going on in other towns and cities as well?
