Bring these evil men to book: Asian gangs who groom teenage girls for sex to be finally targeted in crackdown
- Catalogue of failures by police and care agencies to protect teenage girls highlighted in report
- Caregivers have suggested that political sensitivities are to blame for failures
- Government will this week publish a National Action Plan to combat child sex exploitation
The Government has finally answered the call to protect vulnerable children in danger of sexual exploitation.
It will, this week, publish a National Action Plan designed to make the issue a 'top priority' for every local authority.
The news comes amid a devastating report into the failures of police and care agencies to protect teenage girls who have been groomed, raped and sold by male gangs, most of whom are Asian.(Muslim)
The mother of one teenager from Leeds, who attempted suicide after a gang rape, said her daughter was the victim of a 'broken system.'
'Everyone failed her,' she told The Times. 'There was no sharing of information.
'They (police) had the names and knew where they (abusers) worked yet the men who did this have never once been arrested or spoken to by the police.'
West Yorkshire Police vowed to look again at the case to see if 'there is evidence that can help bring evil men to book'.
