*EXCLUSIVE NEW INFO* Lanarkshire Grooming Gang



“Both the police and North Lanarkshire Council said they were unaware of such incidents and not involved in any investigation into allegations of sexual grooming in the Wishaw area.”


This has striking similarities to Rochdale...  whilst nowhere near as bad,


UNTIL – like Rochdale – THERE ARE 50+ KIDS ABUSED?

Concerns have been raised that eight teenage girls in Lanarkshire are being sexually groomed by a gang of Asian men from Glasgow

Victims and their families urged to contact the police or social work

Concerns have been raised that eight teenage girls in Wishaw are being sexually groomed by a gang of Asian men.

The Wishaw Press has been told a group of men from Glasgow have targeted the girls – some whom are under the age of sexual consent – and have threatened them with violence if they tell anyone about the seedy goings-on.

Anyone worried about girls being sexually groomed are urged to contact the police and tell them about concerns.

Residents have said the predators are contacting the youngsters through social media and then meeting up with them at a bridge between Dimsdale and Pather and then taking them in a car to sexually abuse them at a house in the Govan area of Glasgow.

It’s understood they are supplying them with gifts and booze and then taking advantage of them before dropping them back off in Wishaw.

A source told the Wishaw Press the girls have been “brainwashed” into thinking the men are their boyfriends.

Families are too frightened to speak out in fear of reprisals after being threatened if they inform authorities what is going on.

Now questions are being raised whether parents do know where their daughters are going at the weekends, where they are staying and who they are with.

A 12-man Asian grooming gang in Rochdale, England, were jailed for over 140 years in total for abusing a 13-year-old girl in Keighley last year.

The gang preyed on teenage girls, plying them with drink and drugs before abusing them.

The source said abuse is “escalating” and urgent action is needed.

There have been calls for immediate action to be taken to stop young girls being sexually abused by the Asian gang.

One source told the Wishaw Press: “The police and social work have been informed about this.

“It is something similar to what happened in Rochdale and it has to be stopped.

“There needs to be a full investigation into this.

“The girls are told there will be repercussions if they tell anyone.

“They have been brainwashed and say that the men are their boyfriends.

“Most of the girls are from Wishaw but there are some from elsewhere.

“We don’t know exactly how many are involved. But there could be about eight from Wishaw.

“They are meeting at a bridge between Dimsdale and Pather.

“You don’t expect something like this to be happening here.

“It is escalating.”

And the source said parents should know exactly what their children are doing, who they are with and where they are going.

The source added: “Children are walking about with rucksacks at the weekend.

“Do the parents know where their children are going and who they are with?

“Are their children receiving expensive gifts like clothes or phones. Is there anything unusual?

“There is a lot of under-age drinking taking place.

“A 13-year-old girl was found drunk and slumped in the street.”

Wishaw councillor Fiona Fotheringham said: “Any reports of sexual grooming in the area is concerning. I have spoken to social work and the police and neither partners have had any reports and are unaware of any issues of this nature.

“I would urge anyone to immediately report any concerns to the police for investigation.”

Both the police and North Lanarkshire Council said they were unaware of such incidents and not involved in any investigation into allegations of sexual grooming in the Wishaw area.

The 36-page review was presented to the Glasgow City Community Health Partnership (CHP) on December 17, a meeting attended by top health and social workers from across the west of Scotland.

Called ‘The Rotherham Report – Implications for Glasgow’, it revealed that sexual abuse of children by grooming gangs is still being encountered as part of “day to day practice”.
It also detailed a number of serious failings, including:

  • Police Scotland have never viewed meetings to discuss vulnerable young people as a “priority” and do not have enough officers to attend every child protection meeting
  • poor communication between the various departments and agencies, even within the Glasgow Child Protection Committee (CPC) itself
  • senior health board managers and councillors are not always aware of the “scale and the seriousness of the current problems”

In recent years, police have carried out two investigations into grooming gangs in and around Scotland’s largest city, Operation Cotswold and Operation Dash.

Police Scotland said yesterday that Operation Dash ended last month(FEB) after almost two years, with 27 offenders reported to the Crown Office. One culprit, 20-year-old Afghan asylum seeker Javaid Akhond, has already been jailed for six years for preying on young girls.

Last year, this newspaper revealed that child protection officials repeatedly vetoed a Significant Case Review into the widespread abuse uncovered by detectives.

“Information sharing needs to improve across all agencies”  Moira McKinnon

The first part of the December 17 report was prepared by Moira McKinnon, Principal Officer with Glasgow’s Child Protection team.She said there was a lack of “awareness” of CSE (child sexual exploitation) in the city, including among staff in residential children’s homes.

Some youngsters had even been drawn into the clutches of the grooming gangs “as a result of being accommodated with other vulnerable young people who are engaged in CSE and other concerning behaviours”.

The report reveals that “many of the Dash victims” were in the care of their local authority, and that a review of the VYP (Vulnerable Young People) and CP (Child Protection) procedures has been instigated.

Incredibly, Ms McKinnon adds: “Dash has identified that we do not have the correct people around the table at VYP meetings from health and police and these agencies need to review their current processes in light of the learning from Dash.

“In discussion with police there is an acknowledgement that VYP has never been a priority meeting for the police and they are unclear about its status. The police are indicating that they currently do not have the capacity to attend all CP meeting requests and attendance at VYP would not be possible within the current staffing arrangements.”

She adds: “Information sharing needs to improve across all agencies.”

In Rotherham, Baroness Jay QC found that police and social workers failed to act against Asian grooming gangs because they feared being viewed as “racist”.

Ms McKinnon states: “There is learning to be taken from Operation Dash with regard to the management of legal process where race has been an issue. A number of male suspects in Dash have come from out with Scotland.”

She concludes: “The [Jay] Report is very clear that ‘this abuse is not confined to the past but continues to this day’ as is evidenced in Glasgow through the two police operations and day to day practice.”

The second part of the December 17 report was prepared by Marie Valente, Head of Child Protection Development with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

She said: “We need to ensure that senior managers in NHSGGC and elected members are aware of the scale and the seriousness of the current problems.”

Ms Valente added that “NHSGGC has no policy/guidance for health staff on child sexual exploitation. This is currently being progressed.”

A third part of the report features comments from a range of health and social workers, revealing that even children in wheelchairs may be falling victim to the gangs.

In conclusion, Alison Rennie, one of Scotland’s top paediatricians, wrote: “I am concerned that child protection processes are still quite removed from practitioners working on the ground.”

She added: “Within the Glasgow CPC, it is not always clear where the lines of communication are in relation to this and how information and learning is shared from this forum. We need to get better at local interagency working between health and social work to identify vulnerable children and young people at an earlier stage.”

Last night, Detective Chief Superintendent Lesley Boal said that information sharing meetings were held throughout Operation Dash, first on a weekly and then a monthly basis.She added: “In Greater Glasgow Division any requests to attend meetings, be they Vulnerable Young Persons or Child Protection meetings are received at the Risk and Concern Hub where they are assessed by a Detective Inspector and the most appropriate officer is identified to attend.”

A spokeswoman for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde said: “There is already collaborative working between NHS staff and partner agency staff across a range of services to ensure that vulnerable children across Glasgow are being identified and supported as a priority.

“Although we already provide training for staff this report sets out how we can extend this even further to help identify children at risk.”

A Glasgow City Council spokesman added: “There is a very constructive relationship among all child protection partners in Glasgow that is helping to protect those at risk of child sexual exploitation and bring perpetrators to justice.”

  1. Seems the authorities are unaware of anything going on, perhaps that is true, BUT Yet, where have we heard all this before? Hopefully now this is published,it will be looked into & nipped in the bud, afore it grows much worse(as many of the other cases shamefully were permitted to do) The worst of these cases is, once you become interested there’s risk of you getting slagged off as “racist” “Islamophobic.” I’ve become interested & concerned about it specifically, because although it isn’t only “Asians” sexually abusing children,but these particular cases have been ignored, by those whose job it was to investigate.
    It’s shocking the extent this rotten crime has become. Everyday, even in my regional newspaper, there are cases of people-mainly men-who’ve been charged over oggling kiddie porn or even involved in producing the filth. Or someone being done for attempting to meet up with youngsters who they know are underage,Thank God new vigilant (non violent) groups outing such people, are managing to catch some of these pervs, so that instead of meeting an underage bairn, they meet a law officer and are charged accordingly.
    This crime has been committed by lots of people, celebs,even in Christian churches,politics, perverts from all walks of life. If not for good people such as yourself (Where’s The Outrage) & others, keeping an eye on these matters, and shouting out about it, i fear the filth is in danger of becoming “normalised.”There’s so much of it & although many people don’t like it, alas there is a spirit of apathy.

    But returning back to the Asian gangs, the danger here is -as has been proven -the authorities seemed to have been only too willing to have it brushed under the carpet, rather than step on the toes of Political Correctness. Even though these crimes have been racist too, the authorities, which should have acted have been too bottleless to do anything to stop it, & the perpetrators know all this and have taken advantage of it. Strange times we’re living in, scary times in fact. One MP has lost her job because she had the bottle to speak the truth and air digust, while another MP wishes victims would keep their mouth shut for fear of it upsetting the apple cart of the political agenda of diversity.
    Hopefully the authorites in Glasgow will now look into these allegations and if there is something in it, many kids will be kept from harm.
