Child abuse is still taking place in Telford but the police are too scared to confront the gangs because they don’t want to be labelled ‘racist’, according to a man who claims his daughter is currently being groomed.
Westmonster went to Telford to investigate what the reality was like on the ground after news broke that it could be the scene of Britain’s worst ever child grooming scandal.
The first person our reporter spoke to said: “Can I speak to you privately over here? Listen, I know it’s still happening. I know because it’s happening to my daughter right now.”
He said social services have to check her attendance at a local college every day in case she’s absconded to spend time with the grooming gang, or been kidnapped.
The man, of Indian heritage, said: “If you drive around you see groups of Pakistani men. Just a few days ago I saw a group of them surrounding a young, white girl. They were trying to put cigarettes in her mouth, they were just harassing her in the street. This is how it starts.
“The problem is there, it’s plain to see, but the police and politicians are too afraid to tackle it because they think they’d be labelled racist. This is like a mafia town. The amount of drugs in the area is shocking and they seem to come from the same gangs who are abusing the girls.
“You see big buildings around the town centre that are always empty. How do those business owners afford the rent? I think there’s widespread money laundering going on. It’s proper mafia.”
When asked how he would describe the gangs, he said: “Please don’t call them Asian. I’m Indian, and if you call them Asian then it implicates me. They are Pakistani. Please be specific.”
Local councils and police forces can’t keep burying their heads in the sand. This is an historic problem and it’s still happening today. If they’re too scared of being called racist to actually confront the problem and save goodness knows how many more young girls from this depraved abuse, then they’re not fit to hold public office.
