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

Becky Watson

The paper's 18-month probe uncovered that an estimated 1,000 children suffered at the hands of pedophiles, lured from their families, drugged, beaten, and raped.

Years later, a police investigation identified more than 100 potential victims, who were abused between 2007 and 2009, in an investigation called 'Operation Chalice.' Police said there could be as many as 200 perpetrators.

The local council yesterday asked for the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse to upgrade Telford to become a separate specific review alongside allegations involving establishment figures and the Church of England.

But their hell went on for decades as authorities repeatedly failed to stamp out a network of paedophiles in the town.

But the Mirror obtained the girl's diaries, where she talked about her two years of sexual abuse by an Asian grooming gang-since the age of 11.

"If you suspect a child is a victim of sexual offences or is being sexually abusing you must report this, even if it is just a suspicion". The main abusers I would say seven - but I was being sold every day, countless times, for four years.

"Night after night, I was forced to have sex with multiple men in disgusting takeaways and filthy houses".

"Days later, the ringleader turned up at my house and told me he'd burn it down if I breathed a word of what had happened".

He said he "should have been tougher" and put a stop to his daughter's relationship with the older man, but said the taxi driver had claimed he was four years younger than his true age. In one case, a mother took a list of people she believed to be abusing her daughter to the authorities, only for her complaints to fall on deaf ears, it has been reported.

Lucy Lowe, 16, was killed in 2000 along with her mother and sister after her 26-year-old abuser Azhar Ali Mehmood set fire to their house. She was 16 years old.

He was jailed for killing the teen, along with her mum Eileen and her sister Sarah, 17 - but was never arrested or charged over sex abuse.

According to The Mirror, the killings were used to threaten other victims and pressure them to keep quiet.

Holly said that she only managed to escape the abuse by leaving Telford, where she had grown up - cutting herself away from all her friends and family.

"I had two abortions and nothing was said to me. I thought they'd only be safe if I killed myself".

In 2002, 13-year-old Becky Watson died in a auto accident in Shropshire.

She told the Sunday Mirror: "Girls like Becky were treated like criminals". I was going into the doctors and the youth sexual help clinic perhaps twice a week and no one questioned anything.

"Personally I am not shocked at the scale of the abuse because I saw it with my own eyes and how many girls there were at the same time as me".

A government report into the Rotherham grooming scandal found that political correctness, a "culture of fear" and intimidation, and concerns about accusations of racism allowed the mainly Muslim gangs to get away with their crimes for so long. Her sister Emma said she has "no doubt Vicky would still be here if she hadn't been so badly abused - yet the people who made her life hell still walk the streets".

Telford's Member of Parliament Lucy Allen demanded a public inquiry.
