Senior investigating officer Detective Inspector Simon Morton, who was praised by the judge for his work on the abuse ring case in Oxford, has reassured victims of abuse that they will be helped by police and warned offenders:
" We know how you think, we know how you work, be under no doubt, no doubt, we are coming for you."
Outside court he said:
Today is a great day for the victims. At last they have seen justice.Tonight, when the girls go home, they can go home in confidence, knowing that these men that have caused them so much pain are behind bars.
But, more than that, this shows every victim in the country that justice can work and it can work for them.
And I put a plea out to them - if you have suffered in the same way that our girls have suffered, please come forward and tell your story, we can help.
There is another message here and the message is this - if you even think about carrying out or committing the sort of sexual atrocities that we have seen in this case then think again.
Look over your shoulder and keep looking over your shoulder.
We know how you think, we know how you work, be under no doubt, no doubt, we are coming for you.
