Girl victim of Britain’s worst child abuse scandal involving 1,000 children fell pregnant six times in four years
Sunday Mirror Investigation: Sex gangs targeted girls as young as 11 who were lured from their families to be drugged, beaten and raped in an epidemic that victims believe is still ongoing.
A schoolgirl fell pregnant six times in four years during Britain’s worst child abuse scandal which affected up to 1,000 girls for 40 years.
An investigation by the Sunday Mirror exposed the horror – as sex gangs targeted girls as young as 11 who were lured from their families to be drugged, beaten and raped in an epidemic that victims believe is still ongoing.
One schoolgirl was pregnant six times in four years after being targeted by abusers in 2004.

The Rotherham toll was put at 1,500 – but that was in a community of 260,000.

One 14-year-old, groomed and abused after her phone number was sold to paedophiles, said: “I hated what was happening and my abusers made my skin crawl but I was told that if I said a word to anyone they’d come for my little sisters and tell my mum I was a prostitute.
“Night after night, I was forced to have sex with multiple men in disgusting takeaways and filthy houses.
