OUR first thoughts today are with the young victims of the Huddersfield grooming gang who were subjected to a level of sexual abuse that defies understanding.
The youngest of the 15 girls subjected to degrading abuse on an industrial-scale by a grotesque group of 20 depraved paedophiles was just 11.

Yet it is to the immense personal credit of the victims that they not only came forward, but had the fortitude to withstand a tortuous legal process and bravely relive their ordeal in court, in order to finally bring the perpetrators of these vile crimes to justice.

Huddersfield grooming gang: How young girls were exploited and raped in car parks, a snooker centre and a takeaway

Jurors at Leeds Crown Court heard “chilling” details of how girls were passed around gang members and subjected to degrading abuse after being drugged and violently attacked.

‘Why Tommy Robinson owes Huddersfield grooming gang victims an apology’

image9The gang of sexual predators that raped and abused children as young as 11 years old might still be walking the streets of Yorkshire following the recklessness of far-right activist Stephen Yaxley-Lennon.
The former leader of the English Defence League took it upon himself during proceedings to disregard reporting restrictions put in place to protect the justice process.
As the accused faced their days in court, Yaxley-Lennon, who goes by the name Tommy Robinson, took to Facebook to broadcast live content which could have caused the trial to collapse.
