Rotherham Worker 'Told To Give Girls To Abusers'

By Mike McCarthy, North of England Correspondent

A whistleblower who repeatedly tried to expose the full extent of child sex abuse in Rotherham has told Sky News that a manager actively encouraged her to release underage girls into the hands of abusers.

In an exclusive interview, the former residential care worker said that when she alerted senior staff about men frequently waiting outside children's homes to take the girls away she was told: "Let them go!"

The former employee says she even confronted some of the abusers herself in an attempt to prevent them taking the children away and now fears reprisals.

Helen - not her real name - said: "I even went down the path and told [the men] 'Look! They are children. You are not having them!' 

"One of the girls said to me: 'Don't let me go!'  They said: 'The longer you f*****g well delay this the more we'll take it out on her.'"

Over almost 17 years the former employee worked in most of the local authority children's homes in Rotherham and says she submitted several written reports warning managers that underage girls were being drugged and raped. 

She claims her warnings were ignored and that she was treated as "a thorn in the authority's side".

"It was like letting them out to be raped ... When I rang up a senior officer who was on call, when I needed advice about these Asian men coming to the units taking the children, she just said: 'Open the door and let them go.'

"Because I told the truth and I stuck up for the children and I was a proper child protection worker I was too much of a problem for them. They were hiding everything," she said.

Helen's life took a complicated turn after the warnings. 

She was sacked by Rotherham Council after she reported to the police that she had found "paedophile images" on her former partner's computer. 

She was dismissed after it was discovered she had stored wholly innocent photographs of some of the girls from a children's home on the same device.

The authority says an "appropriate" process was followed in relation to Helen's dismissal and that "a great deal of hard work is now taking place to address weaknesses in children's services."

But the former care worker says that several years later she still suffers from the "nightmare" of her treatment.

In tears, she told Sky News she had been driven close to suicide.

Police Trained To Spot 'Paedophile Tattoos'

Police have been training to spot tattoos, books and even clothing that could indicate someone is a paedophile.

About 400 Durham officers were taught specialist skills developed by Texas police and Dr Joe Sullivan, an expert who has worked on the Madeleine McCann case.

They learnt about behavioural signs that could signal a potential child abuser and prompt the need for further questioning.

Dr Sullivan said he did not want to give more details to the public but that his knowledge had come from interviewing thousands of paedophiles.

"I have learned from that they have had to say, what are the key indicators that someone who may not have that level of knowledge may not pick up on.

"This training is about targeting frontline staff who are not working in the arena of child sexual exploitation."

It is the first time UK police have taken part in the Intervene to Protect a Child programme and it is hoped it will help them spot warning signs - even if the case is not originally flagged as child abuse.

PCSO Adam Grundy, 28, put his new skills to use just two weeks after the training, protecting a five-year-old girl.

He became concerned when he spotted a condom and a Viagra pill at the property of a man in his 80s during a routine call.

Mr Grundy said: "This guy was being very evasive with me when normally he would engage. He was very stand-offish and wanted me to leave.

"His personality had completely changed and that was something I referred back to in my training."

The training has also been completed by another 160 workers including teachers, fire officers and health workers.

"We are giving them the confidence to recognise, if people wear certain clothing, if people have certain tattoos, if people behave in a certain way, that might be an indication," said Durham's chief constable, Mike Barton.

"When you add these things together, that should give them the confidence to a frontline member of staff to do a bit more digging."

Parking Notice Gives Clue To Kate's Due Date

Written By nana jamaika on Rabu, 15 April 2015 | 16.12

Parking restrictions are being put in place near the hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge is due to give birth to her second child.

The restrictions, detailed on yellow signs outside the private Lindo wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, come into force tomorrow.

They run until 30 April, suggesting the Duchess will give birth by this date at the latest.

Her due date has not been confirmed but reports have suggested it is around 25 April.

There is speculation that the baby, which will be fourth in line to the throne, could arrive on the Queen's birthday on 21 April, or William and Kate's fourth wedding anniversary on 29 April.

Kate is already on maternity leave and will return to St Mary's for the birth following the delivery of Prince George there two years ago.

She and Prince William chose the Lindo Wing as the place to have their first child, following in the footsteps of Diana, Princess of Wales, who gave birth to both her sons there.

Official confirmation that the Duchess is in labour is expected to come from Kensington Palace once she has been admitted to hospital.

'Third' Of GPs Thinking Of Quitting Before 2020

A third of GPs are thinking about retiring from general practice in the next five years, according to a survey of thousands of doctors.

Nearly four in 10 (37%) said their workload was too much to deal with, while 53% said it was tough but generally manageable.

Two-thirds (68%) also told the British Medical Association (BMA) that they experienced significant work-related stress, but insisted they could deal with it.

Just one in six said they were unable to handle the stress of their job.

The BMA survey questioned 15,560 GPs and also found one in five trainees (19%) was already thinking about writing off work in the UK in favour of a job abroad.

The doctors' association said it raised doubts over political promises to dramatically boost GP numbers over the next five years.

Dr Chaand Nagpaul, BMA GP committee chair, said the survey painted a bleak picture of frustrated GPs facing "burnout" and swamped by "pointless paperwork".

"In this climate, it is absurd that in the recent leaders' debate, political parties were attempting to outbid each other on the number of GPs they could magically produce in the next parliament," said Dr Nagpaul.

The head of the Royal College of GPs went further and said the pressures on GPs posed a "genuine danger to patient safety".

Dr Maureen Baker said: "Highly trained and experienced GPs are leaving the profession in growing numbers because of the intense and increasing pressures that we are facing, and not enough medical students are entering general practice to replace them.

"This is a genuine danger to patient safety - and to the wellbeing of hardworking family doctors and our teams."

"We simply don't have enough GPs to cope with the increasing demand of our growing and ageing population," added Dr Baker.

Karen Buckley: Police Search Glasgow Park

Dozens of police officers and a helicopter have been scouring a Glasgow park for clues on the disappearance of missing student Karen Buckley.

The entrance to Dawsholm Park was cordoned off after the 24-year-old's handbag was found there.

Ms Buckley went missing in the early hours of Sunday after leaving the house of a man she met on a night out.

The man, who is not currently a suspect, told officers she had left at 4am but the Irish student has not been seen since.

It is believed she was planning to walk back to her flat in Hill Street.

Her parents, who have flown from Ireland to help with the search, said it was typical for her not to use taxis.

Ms Buckley spent Saturday night with friends at Glasgow's Sanctuary nightclub on Dumbarton Road.

She told them at around 1am she was going to the toilet, but failed to return and left her jacket behind.

CCTV spotted her leaving the club with the man, whose identity has not yet been revealed.

Detective Superintendent Jim Kerr said: "We've traced the man she was with in Dorchester Avenue. He believes he was intimate with her at his flat consensually in the early hours of Sunday.

"From what we can see, she does not appear to be under duress, there's no signs of a struggle or reluctance on her part to leave the club.

"However, that does not mean that something untoward has happened to her at a later stage."

The parents of Ms Buckley, who studies occupational therapy and is originally from Cork, said they were "desperate" for the public's help.

"We just want Karen home safely, we are desperate. She is our only daughter, we love her dearly," said her mother, Marian.

"If anybody has any information please come forward, we would dearly appreciate it."

Ms Buckley's father, John, said: "If anybody is holding Karen, if anybody knows anything of her, please return her. Please let's have her back. We love her to bits."

Det Supt Kerr said Ms Buckley was widely travelled and was "aware of how to take care of herself".

Police also want to find out more about a grey car seen on the roads between Milngavie and Drymen, north of Glasgow, between 11am and 3pm on Monday.

Det Supt Kerr said: "The activity of this grey car on the Monday is something that we're a wee bit concerned about.

"This car has been seen at various locations on these roads and I want to know why."

Ms Buckley is between 5ft and 5ft 2in with brown eyes and dark hair which has long black curly extensions in it.

She was last seen wearing a black jumpsuit, red high-heeled shoes and carrying a black handbag.

Mugger Who Attacked 92-Year-Old For £5 Jailed

Written By nana jamaika on Selasa, 14 April 2015 | 16.12

A robber who knocked over and injured a 92-year-old pensioner to steal £5 has been jailed for 30 months.

Solomon Bygraves, 29, told Stanley Evans he was going to help him with his wheelie bag as he returned from a shopping trip.

But as soon as he was in the block of flats he lunged for the pensioner's wallet, knocking him to the ground.

CCTV footage played at London's Southwark Crown Court showed Bygraves running off as the pensioner falls to the floor.

Mr Evans remained lying in the entrance to the flats in Soho, central London, for 10 minutes after the attack on 31 January.

Bygraves has 21 convictions for 49 different offences including two for robbery.

The judge, Recorder Andrew Mitchell QC, said the attack on Mr Evans, now 93, could have been fatal.

He said: "The victim in the case could easily have died, not through any other reason than just snatching something from him, and causing him therefore to fall down, and he could have just gone at that age."

"He was a very small, frail man and (Bygraves) must be more than 6ft."

The court heard Bygraves was out on bail for a domestic matter at the time of the attack.

He was coming down from Class A drugs when he spotted the "vulnerable old man" return home with his shopping.

Richard Sedgwick, prosecuting, said: "Mr Bygraves is an exceedingly large man.

"There appears to be some evidence of targeting - the age and the size difference point to that.

"Mr Evans presents as an easy victim."

Outlining the attack, he said: "Mr Evans is returning to his block of flats with his shopping. He is 92 years-old.

"The defendant follows him in behind him. There is a conversation. Mr Evans recalls it as being about visiting a friend inside the block of flats and helping him with his shopping.

"Mr Evans then waits for a lift. The defendant returns, accosts him, takes Mr Evans' wallet from him causing Mr Evans to fall to the floor where he is unable to rise from for some time."

The pensioner, a retired camera assistant who worked on films including the 1947 classic Brighton Rock, eventually managed to get to his feet and call 999.

The attack was branded as "totally unprovoked, callous and sickening" by police.

Mr Evans suffered a shoulder and arm injury in the incident.

Bygraves, who has bipolar disorder, initially denied the crime.

He said he went over to Mr Evans because he looked ill, the pensioner collapsed and he "panicked" and ran off.

But he later admitted it and has written a letter of "remorse" to the judge.

In his victim impact statement, Mr Evans said: "I believe that the man who robbed me should be punished for attacking a 93-year-old pensioner.

"He should not abuse his strength."

'Syria-Bound' Brit Waheed Ahmed Arrested In UK

A British man detained in Turkey for allegedly trying to cross illegally into Syria with eight members of his family has been arrested at Birmingham Airport.

Police say Waheed Ahmed, the son of Rochdale councillor Shakil Ahmed, was detained early today following his deportation from Turkey.

Ahmed is understood to have flown to Birmingham from Dalaman, according to Sky sources. The rest of the group are expected to be flown back to Britain later today.

A video released on Sunday showed Ahmed apparently leaving a Turkish police station and being put on a coach.

Ahmed was with his aunt, two cousins and one of their wives when they were stopped in Turkey, near the Syrian border on 1 April. They had four children with them.

Most of the group flew from Manchester on 27 March, but Ahmed joined them three days later on a flight from Birmingham.

There were reportedly concerns about his behaviour in the months before he was arrested.

Mohammed Shafiq, who is a friend of Shakil Ahmed, said of Ahmed: "There were concerns in the last six months to a year about a change in his behaviour.

"And a change in his attitude towards various different issues."

He also told Sky News: "That was causing concern for people in the community and his family."

Other family members detained in Turkey include Zareeda Bi, 47, Maboob Yasin, 22, Habib Yasin, 24, Samia Bi, 22, and youngsters aged one, three, eight and 11.

Police are trying to establish their reason for travelling to the Syrian border.

The Foreign Office said it did not comment on individual cases.

Officers have searched at least five homes in the Manchester area, including that of the Labour councillor.

Cllr Ahmed said he thought his son had been in Birmingham on a work placement when he discovered he had been detained in Turkey.

He has described him as a "good Muslim" and said his son's "loyalties belong to Britain".

"If I thought for a second that he was in danger of being radicalised, I would have reported him to the authorities," said Cllr Ahmed.

Inflation Steady At 0% Annual Rate In March

The annual rate of inflation has remained steady at 0% for the second consecutive month.

The Office for National Statistics said the consumer price index (CPI) measure remained at its lowest level since comparable records began in 1989 as transport costs rose - offsetting weaknesses in food and clothing prices.

Fashion costs fell between February and March for the first time on record, the ONS said, possibly reflecting changes to seasonal discount patterns.

Food and non-alcoholic beverages were 3% cheaper year on year in March, though this was a smaller decline than in the previous month.

Petrol costs rose as oil recovered a bit of ground following its dramatic collapse last year.

The ONS said fuel prices rose 3.8p between February and March, though they were still down sharply on the year.

It has been oil weakness and the effects of the supermarket price war that have driven inflation to the brink.

Some economists had predicted the CPI calculation would turn negative for March, showing prices falling on an annual basis.

While the governor of the Bank of England, Mark Carney, has welcomed the prospect of price falls for consumers and most businesses he has pledged to guard against the possibility of the UK entering a more entrenched period of falling prices, known as deflation.

Economists say deflation is unwelcome in any economy because it tends to delay purchases amid hopes the cost of goods and services will be cheaper in future.

Static prices have arrived at a time when wages are starting to grow following six years of inflation outpacing salary increases.

The last ONS figures on wages showed annual growth of 1.6% when the effects of bonuses were stripped out.

Mr Carney has been awaiting better news on wage growth as a pre-condition to raising the base rate of interest from its historic low of 0.5%.

But the inflation figures place the Bank's monetary policy committee under no pressure to act and most economists see no prospect of bank rate going up until next year.

The Bank has forecast a short period of negative inflation within months.

That is likely to be aided by figures showing that core inflation, a measure which strips out volatile factors such as energy and food, fell sharply to 1.0% in March,

The pound fell by half a cent against the US dollar, hitting $1.46, shortly after the ONS released the figures.

Jail Threat As 'Revenge Porn' Law Comes In

Written By nana jamaika on Senin, 13 April 2015 | 16.12

Sharing sexually explicit images without consent carries a potential two-year jail sentence from today, as a new 'revenge porn' law comes into force.

The measure targets people who share images or video without permission and with the intention of causing distress.

They are often posted by an ex-partner and sometimes accompanied by personal details, such as a social media profile.

The new law includes uploading to the internet, sending by text, email or messaging platforms, as well as simply showing someone a physical or electronic image.

The Crown Prosecution Service says it "covers images that show the genitals but also anything that a reasonable person would consider to be sexual, so this could be a picture of someone who is engaged in sexual behaviour or posing in a sexually provocative way".

Campaigners hope it will dramatically reduce the number of cases of revenge porn and make it easier to get justice for victims.

Previously, a mix of existing laws, such as the Communications Act and the Protection from Harassment Act, were used to prosecute offenders.

Children as young as 11 have been victims, according to the police.

Calls for a bespoke law gathered momentum after recent high-profile leaks of intimate celebrity images featuring the likes of Rihanna, Jennifer Lawrence and Tulisa Contostavlos.

Campaigner Hannah Thompson, 22, called the changes a "huge step forward".

She said: "I was a victim of revenge porn, and I spent months agonising over it and believing that it was my fault.

"This new law, along with the advice helpline, empowers victims and clearly displays that they are not at fault."

There were 149 allegations of revenge porn in the two and a half years to September 2014, according to eight police forces in England and Wales with data on it.

The vast majority were women but only six incidents ended with any kind of police caution or charge.

Other laws coming in under the Criminal Justice and Courts Act include increasing the maximum jail term for online trolls to two years, and making it illegal to possess extreme pornography that depicts rape.
