London, June 13 (ANI): Girls in Britain as young as 11 are expected to perform sex acts on rows of boys for up to two hours at a time in some areas of London, a shocking report by a watchdog that warns of increasing child abuse across the UK, has revealed.
Deputy Children's Commissioner Sue Berelowitz, while, giving evidence to the Commons home affairs committee, highlighted the rate of sexual exploitation of children happening all over the country.
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.
"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," she told MPs.
Berelowitz said the recent sex abuse case in Rochdale, which involved mostly men of Pakistani origin abusing white girls, was just part of a wider picture of exploitation involving victims and abusers of all races and cultures.
The Daily Mail quoted Berelowitz, as saying that 'there isn't a town, village or hamlet in which children are not being sexually exploited.'
Giving examples from the capital, she said 'there are parts of London where certainly children expect to have to perform oral sex on line-ups of boys, up to two hours at a time from the age of 11.'
"And it was 'quite common' for girls to be lured via internet chat rooms to meet a friend, only to be met by a group of boys and gang raped in a park," she added.
Meanwhile, in the Rochdale case, nine Muslim men, mainly of Pakistani origin, were found guilty of plying girls as young as 13 with drink and drugs so they could use them for sex.
Berelowitzsaid that while it may be true that some Pakistani men saw white girls as 'easy meat', as suggested by a number of high-profile politicians, that was only one pattern among many. (ANI)
