Shocking Home Office report reveals that in Britain every 20 minutes a child is sexually abused

[Tony Whitehill, Criminal News Contributor]

MailOnline:  There is something horribly sick about British adults as a recent report out by the UK Home Office reveals that last year every 20 minutes in Britain, a child was sexually abused. In fact sex crimes against kids in the United Kingdom last year reached total of 23,000 (64 offences a day), but the figures are thought to be conservative.

The victims were mostly high school students, although 1000 crimes involved kids too young to go to school. One in four victims was under 18.  Most  of the sex abuse was perpetratred by friends, family members and carers.

NSPCC, a children’s charity organization, has expressed grave concern and urged the authorities to take immediate action in order to save future victims and track the offenders down.

As a measure of tackling sex criminals and making clear the true scope of the problem,  sex offender identity revelation scheme has been introduced in England and Wales so far and a special governmental report on the sexualisation of children is going to be made public soon.
