Social workers back C4 film alleging sexual exploitation of young girls

    Bradford social workers are disappointed Channel 4 was forced to
    postpone a documentary showing the alleged sexual exploitation of
    young girls by Asian men, Shirley Kumar

    .

    West Yorkshire Police warned racial tension would explode when it
    discovered the British National Party wanted to exploit the
    situation for its own party political broadcast.

    It is understood, the party is making its own documentary to be
    aired on Friday.

    Social services interviewed 49 women, some as young as 11 years,
    during a 16 month investigation. The documentary showed their
    “dedication and tenacity” putting the profession in a
    good light. Bradford Social Services spokesperson said, “As a
    result about 20 women were identified as vulnerable.

    “We are continuing to work closely with the police, local
    schools, the Youth Service, Connexions and Barnardo’s to
    address alleged sexual exploitation of young girls in
    Keighley.”
