Real-life ‘Three Girls’ Rochdale victim claims police and social workers ignored horrifying abuse because they were ‘too politically correct’ to admit sex gang members were Asian

Muslim not “Asian”.

Police and social workers ignored the Rochdale sex abuse scandal – depicted in BBC drama Three Girls – because of political correctness, a victim has claimed.

The woman, who was named Holly in the drama and played by Molly Windsor, said authorities ‘knew exactly what was going on’, but turned a blind eye.

Known as Girl A when the horrific case went to court, the young woman – who cannot be identified for legal reasons – was repeatedly raped by ringleader Shabir Ahmed from the age of 14.

Her comments came days after another woman, identified as ‘Lily’, said she was ignored and came to believe the abuse was normal.
