Independent sex abuse inquiry will not fully investigate Telford scandal, MP fears

Independent sex abuse inquiry will not fully investigate Telford scandal, MP fears

Based on the evidence, professor Liz Kelly, from the Child and Woman Abuse Studies Unit at London Metropolitan University, estimated 1,000 children fell victim to the pedophiles in Telford alone.

The worrying incident comes nearly 18 years after Mr Lowe's family was wiped out in the fire at their home in Leegomery, Telford, Shropshire. They got her hooked on crack cocaine aged 12, and on heroin by 14, and she died from drug use at age 20. They are not discounting the possibility of another arson attack and were talking about installing a fireproof letterbox'.

He added: "It is really important to me that anyone who feels they are a victim of such crimes, or that they know someone who is, can come forward - knowing they will be taken seriously and will be looked after, and that we will go wherever the evidence takes us to investigate these crimes".

In 2002 another schoolgirl - Becky Watson, 13 - was killed in an unexplained vehicle accident in the Shropshire town.

Yesterday another relative told the Mail the teenager had gone from being a model pupil and daughter to a troublesome child after falling under the spell of an older female friend. "If Becky's abuse had been properly investigated by the authorities more girls could have been saved from going through this hell".

In 1985, a 14-year old was groomed by an 18-year-old Asian man.

Highlighting genetic factors "helps us understand people like autistic people, who have trouble imagining the feelings and emotions of others".

Nawaz, who was 21, at the time of the teenager's death, was jailed for three years and banned from driving for five years after admitting reckless driving. Telford will be covered by the national CSE review.

Telford is a relatively small city, with a population of 170,000, making this scandal the most extensive and long-running in the country. It is vital that police and other agencies leave no stone unturned to bring child sex abusers to justice'.

It is alleged that many similar cases of child sexual abuse were reported to Social Workers, who were aware of a major paedophile network in #Telford, from as far back the 1990's.

The probe found that two predatory pedophiles began targeting girls from a local children's home in 1981.

Following allegations from victims that the sex abuse is still ongoing after almost 40-years, Tory MP Lucy Allan has demanded a public enquiry into the decades-long child abuse scandal.

West Mercia Police said it was unable to comment on any "operational decisions" that may have been taken by its officers in relation to Mr Lowe.
