Three out of four of the men who groom youngsters for sex in Birmingham are Asian.
Yet their victims are 82 per cent white, say confidential police statistics leaked this week.
A Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board study in September 2013, never released to the media, found 111 youngsters were at risk of sexual exploitation in the city, some as young as 11 and almost half under 15.
This issue is very much a hidden crime
West Midlands Police said last month that it was currently dealing with 57 live child sexual exploitation cases and 130 suspected cases.
Assistant Chief Constable Carl Foulkes said yesterday: “Child sexual exploitation remains at the top of our agenda. This issue is very much a hidden crime.”
