GMP accused of ‘blanking’ Rochdale grooming victims seeking justice

Don't miss a thing by getting the latest from the Manchester Evening News sent direct to your inbox Greater Manchester Police has been accused of ‘blanking’ three Rochdale grooming victims who have been trying to progress legal action against the force for over 18 months.

The mayor’s office has also been urged to ‘get off the fence’ over the situation, which has seen GMP repeatedly fail to respond to the women’s lawyers since August 2019.

One of the victims told the M.E.N. that publicity around the force’s year-old Child Sexual Exploitation Unit a few weeks ago felt like a particular ‘slap in the face’ to victims who were still trying to get legal acknowledgement of previous failures.
