Britain's worst child sex abuse scandal unearthed

As many as 1,000 children could have suffered at the merciless hands of perverts and torturers in Telford since the 1980s, it said.

An investigation by the Sunday Mirror has revealed Britain's worst ever grooming scandal, which saw authorities paralyzed for 40 years by fears of "racism" accusations as grooming gangs victimized up to a thousand girls in Telford.

There are allegations that two people were silenced, three were murdered and two more passed away in related tragedies.

Although the Mirror report does not mention the religion of the alleged abusers, if the Telford case corresponds to the Rotherham and Rochdale incidents as closely it appears to, the Asian men are likely Muslims. Reports called it a prank, but it turns out an Asian grooming gang abused her for two years.

The town's MP, Lucy Allan, said she would raise the issue in Parliament and is calling for independent inquiry. She has previously called for a "Rotherham-style inquiry" into the allegations. The survivors deserve an inquiry. Many victims may not realise they are a victim of this vile and evil crime. They also claimed violent rapes were still taking place, as recently as only a few months ago. The Mirror found out that two pedophiles started "targeting girls at a local children's home in 1981". This appears to have been the starting point for years of systemic abuse, according to the investigation, which was backed up by documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.

Police and social workers in Telford knew that the abuse had reached "epidemic" levels a decade before Operation Chalice, according to victims who spoke with the Mirror. Only seven men were jailed for a total of 49 years.

Iceland's Sigurdsson in doubt for World Cup with knee injury
The injury could not only end the 28-year-old's season but also put his participation at the World Cup in serious doubt. A statement on Everton's website said it is anticipated that the 28-year-old could be out "for several weeks".

The girl, now 47, says she reported her abuse to the council and school but does not believe action was taken. Now, aged 47, the victim said she told her doctor of the abuse, but her doctor said she was mentally ill and should take medication. "If Becky's abuse had been properly investigated by the authorities more girls could have been saved from going through this hell". A 14-year-old had her phone number sold to paedophiles and was raped. She was 16 years old. Although Mehmood was convicted and jailed for the triple-murder, he was never charged with sexual crimes for the original abuse of Lucy. According to other victims, Lowe's brutal death was used as a warning to other girls.

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

One woman, employed by sex abuse charity Axis Counselling, had to "leave her role after she tried to speak up".

"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 was crying out for help but it felt like I had nowhere to turn. Vicky Round was hooked by the gang on heroin and crack and later died of substance abuse. It's an issue right across the United Kingdom and has been for a long time.

Telford & Wrekin Council has responded to the article with details of how it is committed to protecting children from sexual exploitation.
