Report: Abusers use catalogue to choose children

One of the case studies highlighted in a report on the sexual exploitation of children in gangs and groups describes a business providing children for wealthy clients to abuse at parties.

It even describes a catalogue featuring photographs and the ages of children for abusers to choose their victims. Here are some of the details from 12-year-old Teegan's case:

  • She was taken by a man to a series of "mansions" where she was raped by multiple men
  • The men paid up to £500 for an hour with her
  • Groomers would form 'relationships with vulnerable children on the street before passing them on to the men who ran the business
