Missed chances to halt sex gang: Police and social workers apologise to girls tortured by 'medieval' predators

Catastrophic failings by police and social services allowed a child sex ring to sexually torture girls as young as 11 for eight years.

Victims repeatedly told officers they had been raped or abused by the vicious and ‘medieval’ predators – but no action was taken.

Last night – after the abusers were convicted at the Old Bailey – the police and social services apologised for failing to answer the girls’ desperate pleas for help.

The gang groomed more than 50 vulnerable youngsters before selling them for sex around the country.
