Rochdale's shame

Child sexual abuse has never been a higher police priority. But too many rapists avoid justice, argues former detective Margaret Oliver. As her role in prosecuting the Rochdale grooming gang is marked in a new TV drama, she says police must do more to win the trust of victims

I'll never forget the day I arrested Shabir. The light had begun to fade as we knocked on the door of his terraced house in Oldham one early evening back in 2011. As the safety chain rattled and the door opened, the man standing before us seemed anything but the evil predator leading a Rochdale grooming gang he was about to be exposed as.

He came quietly as we arrested him and there was no sign of the defiance and abusive outbursts that would later be seen in court. He still had the look of someone who thought he was going to get away with it.

And well he might, as many rapists like Shabir had been getting away with it for years. I'd worked with too many young victims of horrific rapes and seen cases go nowhere - even when there was solid evidence. I'd lost count of the times I had to look in the eyes of broken teenagers and explain that there was nothing I could do. The rapists who'd destroyed their lives were about to get off scot-free.

There are some who would shoot these dirty men and there are two at least on this forum, neither post any more and one I believe is still in Australia

Shooting is too quick, they need to suffer and know fear first.

It's a pity they can't be deported after they've served their sentences, they could take with them the lily-livered 'professionals' who allowed it to continue.

The scumbag that led this pervert gang has launched a bid to avoid deportation back to Pakistan funded by the taxpayer, makes you proud to be British doesn't it?

So they are trying to deport them?

Britain would be all the better for it

More than 90,000 people have signed a petition demanding a sexual health worker who exposed a child grooming ring is recognised for her actions.

Sara Rowbotham, who was played by Maxine Peak in the BBC drama Three Girls, collected evidence that helped convict nine abusers in Rochdale.

She was made redundant in 2014, two years after the men were jailed.

The online petition says Ms Rowbotham and her team should be "applauded" for their services to the town.

Three Girls tells to story of how girls as young as 13 were being abused by a group of Asian men, but police initially failed to pursue prosecutions.
