UK Sex Gangs Target Around 1000 Children, Ages 11 and Up

UK Sex Gangs Target Around 1000 Children, Ages 11 and Up

There are allegations that two people were silenced, three were murdered and two more passed away in related tragedies. According to a victim, one abuser earned thousands of pounds a night for years, trafficking underage girls around Britain for sex with hundreds of men.

It can now be revealed that Telford has the third highest number of child sexual offences recorded in the United Kingdom, just behind Blackpool and Rotherham, according to the Home Office.

Widespread sexual abuse, rape, and even murder of girls as young as 11 have stained the United Kingdom city of Telford, according to an investigation by the Mirror.

Reporters talked to 12 victims that identified over 70 abusers.

Lucy Lowe was 16 and pregnant with her second child when she was murdered alongside her sister Sarah, 17, and their mother Eileen, 49, in a house fire in Telford set by Lucy's 26-year-old boyfriend, Azhar Ali Mehmood.

A 40-year-old pedophile ring has been exposed following a probe into child abuse in the sleepy British town of Telford. Similar child sex abuse was also exposed in Rochdale and Rotherham.

The paper said its investigation found that social workers knew of abuse in the 1990s but police did not investigate for a decade.




Mehmood was jailed for the triple murder, but was never arrested or charged in connection with any child sex crimes over his sexual relationship with the underage girl, who became the mother of his child.

One anonymous victim said that Lucy's killing was to scare the other girls into keeping quiet.

In 2002 another schoolgirl - Becky Watson, 13 - was killed in an unexplained vehicle accident in the Shropshire town.

'Barnardo's would support a public inquiry to understand what went wrong so the same mistakes are never made again. The abuse began when she was only 11 years old.

"She had kept a tragic dairy which told of how she was forced to sleep around", and how the police treated her as the criminal. I can't bear to think she was being groomed and wasn't able to ask for help'.

"He might call himself her boyfriend but she was underage".

It comes as more than 6,300 people signed an online petition calling for Telford to have its own independent inquiry into child sexual exploitation. A year ago the Home Office spent time visiting the area and personally paid thanks to the commitment of our staff working to protect young people at risk from sexual exploitation.
