At the age of just 12, Sarah Wilson was made to have sex with multiple men a night while authorities“barely batted an eyelid”, the Rotherham grooming victim has revealed in memoirs of her ordeal.
The now 23-year-old, and whose sister Laura was murdered at the hands of an ‘Asian’ boyfriend in 2010, says she was “just one of dozens of girls” in the town who were “exploited and viewed as white trash”.
“Girls like me — and our families — were crying out for help, but no one listened,” she said. “Politicians were worried that addressing the issue of grooming by British Pakistani men would ‘give oxygen’ to racism.”
The abuse of young, mostly white, girls by older Pakistani men was so widespread in the scandal-hit south Yorkshire town, Wilson told the Mail on Sunday, that she “had no idea” she was a victim of grooming.
