The Deputy Children's Commissioner for England (DCCE) says thousands of children
are victims of sexual crimes by gangs. The number of victims may be 10,000 or more.
From the article:
The exploitation involves children as young as 11 being targeted by groups of men or gangs. They are given gifts and attention, then sold or passed on to others once they are trapped.
The issue reaches across all races and classes, said (DCCE Sue) Berelowitz.
