One would think that police took swift action and broke up the grooming gangs after several scandals in British cities, where police were accused of turning the blind eye to the abuse, but no, grooming is still a huge problem in England. In fact still on an industrial scale.
Grooming of young girls by gangs of Muslim men is still occurring on an “industrial scale” in Rotherham because authorities are failing to tackle an organised child sex crime racket, an investigation by the British newspaper the Express has uncovered.
Professor Alexis Jay's astonishing probe revealed at least 1,400 girls were groomed by sex gangs between 1997 and 2013, and unearthed a series of scandalous failings by local authorities.
A recent follow-up report, published by Professor John Drew in March, concluded that the police are now “adequately” tackling child grooming and that historic failures had been “isolated”.
But testimony, pieced together from independent sources, paints a starkly different picture of the authorities’ response.
A number of people who gave evidence to Professor Drew’s inquiry expressed open dismay at his findings and told us the grooming of girls is as bad now as it has ever been.
And many have told the newspaper of their outright anger the police and local council workers have not done more to crack down on the grooming gangs.
One victim, who we have called Ellie to protect her identity, said: "Raping of white girls by these men is still going on. Some, I know, have had to wait months before they're even asked to give a statement [to the police]. It's shockingly bad still."
In light of the scandalous failings of South Yorkshire Police (SYP) to tackle child sexual exploitation the Government sent in the National Crime Agency (NCA) to oversee the inquiry.
The investigation – called Operation Stovewood – is currently probing more than 7,000 lines of inquiry.
But Ellie said: "What have the National Crime Agency been doing for the last 18 months with their £10million? No arrests yet? We're feeling desperate and disheartened."
Another girl, going under the pseudonym Lizzie, said: "I know a few girls who have come forward recently and been told they are being racist and I know a lot that won't come forward and to be fair I can't blame them.
“Nothing has changed, not in the slightest. It's still the same scale as before."
