Correction: Child sexual exploitation report

By on 18/03/2015 in News, Rebuttals

A report in today’s Birmingham Mail (March 18) inaccurately claims that ‘almost 500 children in Birmingham and the West Midlands have been identified as victims of sexual exploitation in just six months’.

The report is based on an assessment into the extent of child sexual exploitation (CSE) in the West Midlands is published today to coincide with national CSE Awareness Day.

However the report clearly states that during the first 6 months of last year, 488 young people throughout the West Midlands were sexually exploited or were at serious risk of sexual exploitation.
