Following the memorial for Charlene Downes held by British National Party members in Blackpool at the weekend, Adam Walker spoke with North West MEP Nick Griffin about the scandal of Muslim grooming in Britain.
Charlene, who was 14 when she disappeared in 2003, is believed to be one of 60 girls groomed for sex by Muslim workers at takeaways in Blackpool in recent years.
The youngest recorded victim of the grooming was an 11-year-old schoolgirl.
Shocking claims made in court over Charlene’s murder revealed fears that her body had been put through a mincing machine, with takeaway staff said to have joked that her remains had ‘gone into the kebabs’.
Despite overwhelming evidence against the accused, including 52 audio recordings in which the men discussed Charlene’s murder in gruesome detail, the trial collapsed due to police failings and no convictions were made.
The men, Iyad Albattikhi and Mohammed Raveshi, were rewarded with £250,000 each in compensation.
Another victim of grooming in Blackpool was Paige Chivers, who disappeared in 2007. Police believe that 15-year-old Paige was killed like Charlene, by Muslim men preying on young white girls.
Like Charlene, Paige’s body has never been found.
