Telford: largest child sex abuse scandal in history ignored by the BBC
The Sunday Mirror reported this weekend that a young English girl could be one of up to 1000 victims of grooming or child sexual abuse in the Shropshire town over the last four decades, thought to be one of the worst of its kind in modern Britain.

The horrific breaking story of mass abuse by Muslims was not even on the front page of the BBC’s website. Instead they reported about a disturbance at a dog-show and a story about an ex-footballer spitting at a woman in her car.
“In fact, the mass gang-rape of underage girls in Shropshire didn’t even make it to the homepage of BBC Shropshire,” The Spectator noted.
The young white girl, Lucy Lowe, 16, was killed in 2000 in an arson attack on her home along with her mother and sister, one of several killed by their Muslim abusers to cover up their offending, it is claimed.
A Muslim taxi driver Azhar Ali Mehmood, 26, set fire to her house, killing her, her mum Eileen and sister Sarah, 17. The perpetrators were overwhelmingly of Pakistani and Bangladeshi ethnicity and Muslim religion.
Also similar with other grooming gang cases is the authority’s failure to keep details of abusers from Muslim communities for fear of being seen as racist.
A thousand children are feared to have been drugged and abused by Muslim men in Telford since the 1980s. Their hell continued for decades as authorities repeatedly failed to stamp out a network of criminals, abusers and paedophiles operating freely in the town.
Lucy’s uncle, Ed Lowe, says her murder should have alerted authorities to children’s terrible ordeal. The 60-year-old, from Telford, told the Mirror: “Mehmood had sex with an underage girl. I raised it with police when she died but nothing ever came of it. I’ve never got my head around that. Why has he never been punished for it?”
Mehmood first targeted Lowe in 1997. She was 14 when she gave birth to his daughter. Although he was jailed for her killing, he was strangely never arrested or charged over sex abuse. He is up for parole soon.
The number of victims estimated suggest that there could have been more per head of population than in the scandals that rocked Rochdale and Rotherham in recent years, child abuse experts told The Sun.
Official files show council staff listed the vulnerable children who were abused and trafficked as “prostitutes” instead of victims.
Another victim, who was drugged and gang-raped, said Lucy’s killing was a warning to other girls who had wanted to speak out. The scared girl told the Mirror: “I was scared my family would die like Lucy’s – I thought they’d only be safe if I killed myself.”
In 2002 another schoolgirl – Becky Watson, 13 – was killed in a “prank” car accident. It later emerged she had reportedly been abused by an Muslim grooming gang since she was 11 and had wanted to go to the authorities. Her mother said she went to the police but claimed her daughter was treated “like a criminal”. Soon after she spoke to the police, she was killed.
According to The Sun, seven Muslim men were jailed in 2013 following Operation Chalice to stop child prostitution in the Telford area. Mubarek Ali, 34, and his brother Ahdel Ali, 27, were both jailed for sexually abusing, trafficking, and prostituting teens, after luring young white girls into being “drugged, beaten and raped” in an epidemic that victims have said is still ongoing.
Operation Chalice identified more than 100 potential victims abused by Pakistani men between 2007 and 2009. In 2013 a report from local councils admitted that from the late 1990s professionals “had concerns about the nature of some of the child sexual abuse cases presented to them” but had failed to act.
Telford has a population of just under 170,000 people, and South Asians, specifically Pakistanis and Indians, make up the bulk of its small non-white demographic, at around 3 percent of the inhabitants.
According to a Channel 4 Dispatches investigation, “The Hunt for Britain’s Sex Gangs” (2011), police were told that men in Telford would “ejaculate and then urinate in children’s mouths”. There were also allegations of “gang-rape by queues of men while girls were held hostage for hours, sometimes days—all the while being forced to listen to the screams of girls in other rooms with other men”.

The establishment parties dropped in yesterday’s election in Sweden, but far from what would be expected from early polls. The Social Democrats and Conservatives remain the biggest parties, with anti establishment Sweden Democrats at third place, growing from 12.9 to 17.6 percent. However, the party could still play an decisive role, since the difference between the socialist and conservative block is one single seat.
