We heard about a new grooming scandal in Telford back in March, and now we’re hearing more. There’s not only a problem with grooming gangs in the area, but it turns out that local politicians were abusing children as well.
The head of social services in Shropshire abused a 15-year-old boy, and two other local politicians have been involved with child abuse too.
So with all this and no doubt more to come, why are we only looking at the possibility of a council investigation? Why not a full government-aided investigation like with Rotherham?
