- Internet is fuelling abuse of thousands of youngsters, Deputy Children’s Commissioner tells MPs
- Boys, aged 14 and 15, summoned to gang rape which went on for DAYS by Blackberry Messenger
- ‘There isn’t a town, village or hamlet in which children are not being sexually exploited,’ she says
- Girls are being lured into parks by boys they meet online and gang-raped, she tells politicians
- Abusers and victims are from all racial and ethnic backgrounds, she says
- Blocking computers is not enough – because children are now targeted via their mobiles
Girls as young as 11 ‘expect’ to have to perform sex acts on rows of boys for up to two hours at a time in parts of London, a watchdog said as they warned child abuse is rife across Britain.
Deputy Children’s Commissioner Sue Berelowitz said there ‘isn’t a town, village or hamlet in which children are not being sexually exploited’.
In one vile abuse case she uncovered, boys aged 14 and 15 were ‘summoned’ via BlackBerry Messenger to the gang rape of a ‘very, very young girl’ which lasted several days.
She told MPs today: ‘Boys were being called while some were raping the girl to say “come, come, come, you can join in too” and they were arriving and elbowing each other out of the way to rape her.’
