Britain’s Sex Gangs investigates the street gangs involved in the grooming of young girls for sex in the United Kingdom. Research indicates that thousands of girls below the age of consent are being sexually exploited by grooming gangs and that many cases go unreported.
Journalist Tazeen Ahmad meets with the victims of grooming and their parents, whose lives have been scarred. She discovers that girls as young as 12 have been targeted and many have been terrorised into keeping their ordeals secret for years. She also speaks to community leaders who feel that the system has failed these girls and are demanding action. In one shocking scene, two men uncover the truth about how grooming is carried out, the commerce behind it, and why virgins are highly prized.
