Grooming-gjengene bruker ofre til å identifisere nye, potensielle jenter for seksuell utnyttelse.

Rotherham er ikke unntaket. En hjelpearbeider uttalte til Channel 4: «Rotherham is not the exception, it is more likely to be the norm.» Allerede i 2002 meldte Labour MP Ann Cryer at «young Asian lads are grooming underage white girls».

We spent three nights in Bradford, one of the towns with the highest number of CSE (child sexual exploitation) referrals in England in 2014. We spoke to young people and tried to observe what was happening on the streets. Some of the young girls from Rotherham say they were trafficked to Bradford. It is a lively and multicultural city, but young people told us the reporting of grooming cases has created racial tension.

Bradford er en av byene med høyest antall registrerte tilfeller av seksuell utnyttelse av barn.  Byen har også den høyeste konsentrasjonen av pakistanere i England. 

 

Responses from social services also revealed that, while many high-profile cases focus on girls being exploited, that young boys across the country are also at risk. Of the 6,211 cases across the country in the last 18 months, 523 involved boys – 8.4 per cent.
