Home Secretary Amber Rudd has responded to the Newcastle grooming scandal, saying:
‘This was an abhorrent case of sexual predators preying on young women and girls, and I am pleased that they have been brought to justice’.
‘Those responsible are not restricted to any single ethnic group, religion or community’.
‘It is an affront to everyone in our society, and I want to be absolutely clear that political and cultural sensitivities must never be allowed to get in the way of preventing and uncovering it’.
Labour MP for Newcastle Central Chi Onwurah said:
‘I want to make it absolutely clear that there is no excuse, neither ignorance, culture, prejudice nor lack of education which can possibly justify or excuse the abuse of young women’.
‘Crimes of sexual exploitation can be and are committed by members of all communities’.
