54 arrested in crackdown on grooming of young girls for sex

 A police chief has revealed that 54 suspects have been arrested across the Bradford district in the last five months by officers investigating cases of predatory paedophiles.

Speaking after the jailing of two child rapists, who travelled to Keighley to groom and snare their victims, Chief Superintendent Angela Williams pledged to work with the whole community to improve youngsters’ safety.

“There are ongoing investigations into similar crimes – including another case in Keighley – and since October there have been 54 arrests within the Bradford district,” said Chief Supt Williams.

And she stressed this was a sign that police tactics were working to cut out the grooming of vulnerable teenage girls – not a signal of increased paedophile activity.
