Child abuse survivor praises BBC’s Rochdale grooming drama Three Girls

A ROTHERHAM child abuse survivor has praised the BBC’s drama series Three Girls which shines a spotlight on the Rochdale grooming scandal.

The three-part series, which concludes tonight, tells the real-life story of a sexual health worker’s battle with the police and authorities to bring gangs of Asian men, who were exploiting young white girls in the North West town, to justice.

Maxine Peake plays determined sexual health worker Sara Rowbotham, who’s damning evidence helped convict nine Rochdale men of multiple child abuse offences in 2012 — nearly a decade after she had first presented it to the authorities.

Rochdale’s problems are not over it would appear?

Three Girls: Maggie Oliver says known paedophiles are still abusing girls in Rochdale and authorities are ‘more interested in covering up mistakes’

A former detective who helped cage a gang of Rochdale sex groomers in 2012 says offenders identified during the original investigation are still at large and abusing young girls in the town.

Maggie Oliver made the claim ahead of a new drama about the scandal – Three Girls – which tells how child victims of abuse were dismissed as prostitutes and let down by the authorities.

The former detective constable turned whistleblower persuaded many of the victims to speak to the police but later resigned because of the way they were treated.

    Difficult watching but well casted and directed ! I was amazed that the BBC did not skirt around the ethnicity of the abusers, as the similar storyline in the ITV soap, Coronation St, has done. The BBC tackled the point head on and without attempting to “fudge” it and I applaud them for it ! Why is it that the BBC can provide such true to life dramas such as 3 Girls yet give so little coverage in the main news bulletins regarding huge CSE trials all around the country. I wonder what the reaction will be from the ethnic communities in this area ? Silence I would guess.

      “Why is it that the BBC can provide such true to life dramas such as 3 Girls yet give so little coverage in the main news bulletins regarding huge CSE trials all around the country.”
      I think it’s about damage limitation, the BBC and the Guardian have tendency to stick Pakistani street grooming into two boxes, one labeled Rotherham and the other, rather smaller box, labeled Rochdale. That’s where there reportage, such as it is, tends to focus. Covering all the group arrests, charges and trials would enable the viewers to contextualise, and obviously we wouldn’t that
      “I wonder what the reaction will be from the ethnic communities in this area ? Silence I would guess.”
      Seems they aren’t too happy about being asked

      I didn’t realise that Sara Rowbotham had been kicked out

      The truly dreadful Denis MacShameless of course wrote of a “blanket of political omerta covering up a grave scandal” and “vast vote reservoirs”
      He was shown up for the hypocrite he is in “Broken and Betrayed” P167/8. What’s happened with Jayne Senior btw?
      The conspiracy of silence has been all pervading. Did it go right to the top of the Blair/Brown Government and Labour Party? The answer must be in the affirmative

    well done to the BBC . sad its still ongoing around Rotherham and elsewhere .

  3. Albion says:

    A very chilling insight into the systematic rape of children by a group of Pakistani men, the victims had the courage to give their evidence in the face of unpleasant cross examination by the defendants Barristers, that must have taken courage.

    The closing titles raised concern, the NHS sexual health worker who reported the incidents was made redundant, now that is a worrying coincidence, no police officer has been investigated for failing to act and Rochdale Council continue to live in a politically correct bubble.

    Direct parallels with Rotherham in the way the men operated, taxi companies and takeaway outlets, lets hope the many lines of investigation by the police in South Yorkshire result in more convictions .
    Did Rochdale have an equivalent to the hateful Bradford Rotherham Politic blog that published bile against this site for highlighting the grooming of children in Rotherham?

  4. Dave Smith says:

    There are many councillors and ex councillors in Rotherham who are still in denial, and the corrupt leaders have not been investigated.

    • Labour man says:

      Fully agree dave.

      They failed safeguarding and duty of care to the families and young people of this town.

      They knew but never said nowt.

      Then they closed ranks to coverup

      Then the denial and hand wringing.

      Many labour members distance themselves from the cllrs, officers and MPs.

      Not in our name

  5. Caven vines says:

    Well done BBC for showing this and well done to all the victims who have shown so much courage in all this
    AND I HOPE ALL THE POLITICIANS IN ROTHERHAM WHO KNEW AND KEPT QUIET WATCHED THIS
    How do they sleep at night knowing they could have helped end this over 15 years ago
    Yet still no one brought to account

  6. Parsonage says:

    “How do they sleep at night knowing they could have helped end this over 15 years ago”
    They’re so far up their lefty politically correct, one-way anti-racist, bloc vote grubbing bottoms the answer is – quite easily
    Getting past time Operation Stovewood delivered

    • Morse says:

      Excellent and disturbing.

      Every cllr, council officer, MP and the police should be held accountable for failure to safeguard, duty of care and their culpability for the ongoing cse in Rotherham and other areas.

      Some MPs may use mealy mouthed excuses but they should have known. Whats the likelihood that cllrs and others in the know did not inform them?
