A new report says that young children are being moved around the UK to be sexually abused at parties. UK children 'trafficked for sex'
The report, Whose Child Now?, is written by Barnardo's.
Lisa Stacey, who wrote the report, told BBC News:
"This is organised sexual abuse and it can often involve the victim being moved from one place to another.
"More than half the victims regularly go missing."
The children are "basically brainwashed," says Stacey.
Wendy Shepherd, the charity's programme manager in north-east England, told BBC News: "If you looked back 10 years, you might come across children on the street who were being exploited.
"Now it's hidden. Networks are involved and they are moving the children around. The abusers use mobile phones and the internet. They groom the children online and then offline."
11-year-old Moira Anderson was last seen boarding a bus in Coatbridge, near Glasgow, Scotland, in 1957.
She was on her way to the shops to buy a box of chocolates for her mum’s birthday.
According to The Sunday Times (Pressure on police to release paedophile dossier), 23 April 2006, Strathclyde Police have a dossier listing members of a child-abuse ring.
This dossier may identify the people who kidnapped Moira.
The dossier is said to implicate senior public figures, including senior police officers and members of the Crown Office and former Scottish Office.
These public figures are said to have abused children in Strathclyde (the Glasgow area) during the 1950s and 1960s.
The dossier is said to list vehicles and safe houses used in Glasgow, Monklands and Paisley where children were hidden before being taken to sex parties.
Strathclyde police have decided not to release the dossier.
The dossier was written by James Gallogley, a convicted child-abuser who died in Peterhead prison in 1999.
6 June 2005
Former paramedic Sandra Uttley is going to the European Court of Human Rights to demand a new inquiry into the 1996 Dunblane tragedy in which 16 children and their teacher were shot dead by Thomas Hamilton. (http://dailytelegraph.news.com.au/story.jsp?sectionid=1268&storyid=3238389)
Sandra Uttley claims that elements of the police were part of a paedophile ring and part of a cover-up.
Uttley said: "There are glaring anomalies in the inquiry, inconsistencies in witness testimony, incorrect information given on oath and the absence of vital witnesses.
"It is also blatantly obvious that Central Scotland Police, who were chosen to investigate the background to the murders, should never have been involved in a so-called independent inquiry.
"They were implicated in the events under scrutiny and continually provided Hamilton with renewals of his gun licence despite long-term and repeated warnings that this should not happen.
"It was known that Hamilton had friends in the police force, including one highly placed officer.
"I believe that Hamilton was a major provider of pornographic photographs and videos to a ring of men prominent in Central Scotland, including police officers who protected him from numerous allegations of physical abuse at boys' camps and clubs he ran.
"They protected themselves after the massacre which conveniently ended in his suicide".
