Forget about the Police and RMBC failures, the one that could have done the most… Barnardo’s, a national charity for the protection of children. So over the 16yr period covered by Jay ~ 80 to 100 children per year were sexually exploited, even they showed no vision to reduce the risk, how many of the subsequent ~1100 sexually exploited children could have been saved.
“In Rotherham alone for example, 80 girls are said to be working as prostitutes.”
“And experts say prostitution is rife in every major town and city.”
Mark Leigh of Barnardo’s runs a project working with rent boys at London Bridge.
He said: “I think that the sexual exploitation of children is actually spiraling out of control as we speak.”
“It’s our problem, it’s on our doorstep and we need to do something about it.”
The bleak picture.
“In Rotherham for example, it appears there is a highly organised network of pimps involving up to 80 girls, again some as young as 12.”
“And there is evidence that they are being transported from Rotherham to private addresses in red light districts as far afield as Bradford and Sheffield.”
Barnardo’s, they knew that, and to say the BBC reported on the subject.
Don’t worry the truth is out there.
