Unfortunately, there needs to be a ministry or ombudsman to monitor police and hold their feet to the fire. There seems to be no appetite for cleaning up the streets of these scum.
A “Rotherham-style” abuse scandal has erupted in Telford, Shrops, after it emerged local police are sitting on a massive pile of child sex accusations.
As many as 150 pages-worth of abuse claims have built up in the town dubbed the “child sex capital of Britain.”

That’s despite the jailing of seven men in the town involved in organised child abuse in 2012.
One victim who was passed around a string of perverts for sex told The Mirror: “The police have betrayed the children of this town for a second time.

“I dread to think how many victims there have been over the years – it wouldn’t surprise me if the offending was on the same scale as Rotherham.”
Her comments come after the work of local “street pastors” reporting cases of underage girls being approached by older men in the town emerged.
Witnesses have seen men circling underage discos, takeaway shops and other areas popular with youngsters.
Some have even reported seeing men grooming drunk young girls or trying to get into underage clubs.

The work of these church volunteers has been going on since 2013, during which piles of evidence was passed to the authorities.
However, officers have admitted flaws in their reporting system, meaning their intelligence gathering has been hampered.
For three years there are flaws in their reporting system. How many more years do you need to fix it? How many young girls are you throwing under the bus because you just don't care?
