Telford child sex scandal involving 1000 'could be Britain's worst'.

Britain's 'WORST EVER' grooming gang: '1000 girls raped, beaten & even killed by brutes'

Lucy Allan, the Conservative MP for Telford, has called for an inquiry into child sexual exploitation, saying the latest reports were "extremely serious and shocking". She added: "There must now be an independent inquiry into child sexual exploitation in Telford so that our community can have absolute confidence in the authorities".

The Mirror found that at least several hundred - and as many as 1,000 - girls have been abused since the 1980s.

The taxi-driver first targeted Lucy in 1997.

An ongoing probe by a British daily has shown that Telford is not the only locale in the United Kingdom where Islamic sex gangs lured young girls away from their families to sexually exploit, torture and in some cases, murder them.

Two years later, 13-year-old Becky Watson died in a vehicle accident. "If Becky's abuse had been properly investigated by the authorities, more girls could have been saved from going through this hell".

"I fell pregnant twice and had two abortions, [and] hours after my second termination, I was taken by one of my abusers to be raped by more men", she continued. "We presented our findings to Professor Liz Kelly, from the Child and Woman Abuse Studies Unit at London Metropolitan University".

Specialist child-abuse solicitor Dino Nocivelli of Bolt Burdon Kemp said that the survivors of Telford's rampant abuse rings deserve an inquiry.

'They need to know how abuse took place for so long and why so many perpetrators have never been brought to justice'.

"However, I feel we must do everything possible to know and learn further from what happened in the period before Operation Chalice jailed seven men for vile crimes against children".

Don't believe the hype about the coming solar storm
A solar flare that erupted on August 4, 1972, knocked out long-distance communication across some U.S. states, according to NASA. But the cracks could also create fantastic opportunities for stargazers to catch a better view of the Northern lights.

Mubarek Ali, 34, sold teenage girls, some as young as 13, for sex above an Indian restaurant in Telford, Shropshire, after grooming them.

British lawmakers are calling for an independent investigation into yet another large-scale child exploitation operation in the United Kingdom, following an explosive report in a Sunday paper alleging decades of sexual abuse by gangs of South Asian men.

"I don't think I've done anything right for the last five years".

Chief Evans's proclamations of fidelity to his community conflict with the claims of the girls and their families who spoke to the Sunday Mirror and government documents obtained by the publication, which paint a long history of local authorities doing little to nothing to combat Asian grooming gangs, even after knowing about their activities for decades.

West Mercia Police have admitted errors were made in the way detailed reports had from street pastors on night patrol had been handled by police. It's an issue right across the United Kingdom and has been for a long time.

"Telford will be covered by the national [child sexual exploitation] review".

Previous allegations against into South Asian grooming gangs in Telford resulted in Operation Chalice, a 2013 investigation that identified more than 100 potential victims abused between 2007 and 2009. "This information is not new to the police", he said. We welcome this. All agencies continue to work very closely together and this remains our top priority.

In 2016 an Ofsted report said there was a strong commitment from the local authority and its partners to tackle child sexual exploitation.
