Britain’s grooming gangs: is Rishi Sunak doing enough?

50 min listen

For over forty years, tens of thousands of girls and young women have been abused, raped and some brutally murdered across Britain by grooming gangs. It is a scandal that should shame the nation, yet it is an issue that gets brushed aside by authorities, clouded out in the media by disputes over racist reporting, and largely ignored by politicians. All at the cost of justice for those young girls. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak last week announced policy to – finally – attempt to deal with this horrific issue. 

To discuss the policy and the deeper story of the grooming gangs is journalist and documentary filmmaker Charlie Peters.
