Media captionTelford abuse: ‘I was sold twice a night’

A lawyer who led prosecutions against a child sexuality insult ring in Telford has said those cases were the “tip of the iceberg”.

Former chief prosecutor Nazir Afzal, who likewise oversaw similar high-profile cases in Rochdale, said he knew “more would come out”.

Speaking amid calls for a new investigation, he said there were probably thousands of street grooming victims in the UK.

West Mercia Police said it took all allegations “extremely seriously”.

A Sunday Mirror investigation said the scale of sexual exploitation in Telford built it the UK’s “worst-ever child grooming scandal”.
