In just one year’s time, the number of cases of child sexual grooming in the United Kingdom have risen by 64 percent — and now, citizens are demanding the government take action.
Data from the Office for National Statistics showed authorities fielded 1,771 complaints and charges of child grooming throughout England and Wales in the last year, up to June.
Child sex grooming has seen a dramatic surge in the United Kingdom, at a time when migrants from mostly Muslim nations are being welcomed.
That’s a massive hike from the previous year, when that stat stood at 1,080.
The rise coincides with the large surge of mostly Muslim migrants and refugees into the United Kingdom.
NSPCC Chief Executive Peter Wanless said: “This is an enormous rise in recorded grooming offences over such a short period, and the fact that records of grooming offences have increased substantially more than most other crimes shows the need for urgent action.”
A number of regions of Britain saw particularly sharp increases in the number of child grooming offences, with cases in Cambridgeshire quadrupling from last year.
Wales saw the number of cases rise more than 200 per cent, with the ONS data having recorded 119 sexual grooming offences in 2016-2017 compared to just 36 the year before.
“More young people are speaking up about sexual grooming,” said NSPCC Wales head Des Mannion, asserting that “it’s vital that now more than ever police are given the training and the resources to tackle this issue”.
Last month, Breitbart London reported on an illegal immigrant found guilty of 14 sex offences including the penetration and sexual assault of a six-year-old girl.
Using pictures he stole from the internet of a young ‘Justin Bieber lookalike’, Mauritius-born Johann Ramchelawon posed as a teenage boy on social media websites such as Facebook in order to groom underage girls and then blackmail them into performing sex acts on webcam.
Sexual grooming of children was one of the offences which showed the biggest increases in this year’s ONS data, which revealed a 13 per cent rise in crime across England and Wales.
While police blamed government cuts for the shocking figures — which showed particularly sharp rises in violent crime including rape, firearms offences, and knife crime — critics have pointed to a recent surfeit of police campaigns on “hate crime” along the arrest of thousands of people for posting “offensive” online comments, to suggest that forces have misplaced priorities.
