Stop Violence Against Children, child bondage in angle image blur , Human Rights Day concept. London - A botched police investigation into child sexual grooming left abusers free to rape and prey on vulnerable girls for 15 years, a report revealed on Tuesday.

Almost 100 suspects were investigated after 15-year-old abuse victim Victoria Agoglia was given a fatal heroin overdose by a 50-year-old man.

But despite 57 potential victims as young as 12 being identified, only seven suspects were prosecuted or given warnings. Just two abusers were jailed and the probe by Greater Manchester Police was wound up in mysterious circumstances.

On Tuesday a report commissioned by city mayor Andy Burnham revealed what he called an ‘appalling’ betrayal of dozens of children in council care.

He set the report up in 2017 following BBC documentary Betrayed Girls, which highlighted fears by ex-detective-turned-whistleblower Maggie Oliver that offenders escaped scot-free. It found some of the mainly Asian men accused of abusing white children in care "in plain sight" went on to rape and sexually exploit girls. The report exposed how victims were dismissed as ‘promiscuous’, with abusers classed as ‘pimps’.

It also revealed fears had been raised over the impact of the Operation Augusta probe on race relations at the time.

The report said "concerns were expressed about the risk of proactive tactics or the incitement of racial hatred". One detective revealed that officers were told to "try and get other ethnicities". Yesterday whistleblower Mrs Oliver said police and social services chiefs ‘knew the truth and chose to bury the truth’ – which they deny.

Scientists Put 3D Glasses on Cuttlefish and Find Out They Use Human-Like Depth Perception to Hunt Prey

  Scientists Put 3D Glasses on Cuttlefish and Find Out They Use Human-Like Depth Perception to Hunt Prey Researchers at the University of Minnesota recently constructed a miniature underwater movie theater, outfitted a group of cuttlefish with 3D glasses, and proceeded to show them short movies of shrimp—all to see if humans and cuttlefish have more in common than we previously thought. Cuttlefish, squid-like cephalopods with an internal shell, ensnare prey with one swift snatch of their tentacles. If they under- or over-estimate their distance from whatever unsuspecting marine animal they’re eyeing, however, they’ll fail to grasp their prey and give away their position, too.

AAP reported two men who used Tinder to groom young girls were jailed after they were exposed by the Tinder Experiment. Detective Senior Constable Tas Gagatsakis told AAP: “The Tinder Experiment did what police were already doing — just on a different platform.

“At least 57 young girls are thought to have been exploited by a paedophile network based in south – Social workers knew that one 15 - year -old girl , Victoria Agoglia, was being forcibly injected with – Abusers were allowed to freely pick up and have sex with Victoria and other children from city care

And she demanded officers who shut down the probe be prosecuted for misconduct. The chief constable at the time, Mike Todd, was found dead near the summit of Snowdon in 2008 after being exposed for cheating on his wife.

Mr Burnham said the report had finally "shone a light on this dark chapter". "Every one of those abusers should have been brought to justice but, appallingly, most escaped and some were left to reoffend," he said.

He is to ask the Attorney-General to quash Victoria’s inquest – which concluded she had not been failed by social workers – and order a new one.

Almudena Lara, of the NSPCC, said the report outlined ‘shocking failures’ to protect the vulnerable. In 2003, the Mail revealed how authorities in northern towns refused to acknowledge the scale of the abuse, with suspicions they were motivated by political correctness.

Last night a victim of the subsequent Rochdale grooming scandal said girls may have been protected had Operation Augusta not been shelved in 2005. It had been launched in February 2004, identifying as many as 97 potential perpetrators who were mainly Asian men working in restaurants.
