Raped in a playground at 11, abused by seven men a night aged 12: Victim of Rotherham Asian sex gang scandal tells her truly horrifying story
Sarah Wilson was 11 when she was befriended by a group of older men
They showered her with gifts and made her feel special
She said this grooming was 'normal' in Rotherham
By the age of 12, she was forced to have sex with them
They threatened to harm her family if she didn't cooperate
Her mother, Maggie, was powerless to help
They felt letdown by the police and social services
Now 23, Sarah escaped the gang at 17 and is trying to move on
For five years from the age of 11, Sarah Wilson was groomed and raped by Rotherham paedophiles who showered with gifts and made her feel special in what was to become one of the biggest abuse scandals in the UK.
The now 23-year-old admits she became so 'brainwashed' by the older British Pakistani men in the South Yorkshire town she considered it normal for them to expect to have sex with her in return for all they had given her.
Writing an emotional account of her harrowing experience in new book Violated, Sarah, whose sister Laura was murdered, reveals she was plied with alcohol and cannabis by sexual predators.
They habitually abused her until she was 16, when they lost interest because she was no longer underage.
The abuse, which sent shockwaves across the nation, took place in Rotherham between 1997 and 2013.
And Sarah, who is now a mother, was not alone. A report revealed that, since the 1990s, up to 1,400 young girls in the Yorkshire town had been regularly abused by sex gangs, predominantly composed of Asian men.
A National Crime Agency investigation, which could run until 2018, last month announced that it had so far identified 300 suspects
The suspects are ‘predominantly’ Asian men from the South Yorkshire town and include two who have worked for the council. Their victims are mainly white, British, underage and ‘vulnerable’ girls.
Sarah, who has waived her right to anonymity, said had no idea she was a victim of grooming.
She was raped by a 30-year-old man in a school playground at night when she was just 11, leaving her feeling ashamed and disgusted
Sarah said the police and social services did little to help her and she was only freed when she turned 17 - as she was then deemed 'too old' for the paedophiles.
She revealed: 'My mum reported me missing countless times but the police barely batted an eyelid.
'The reason? In their opinion, we'd agreed to this. We kept going back to these men, so surely they couldn't be raping us.
Girls like me - and our families - were crying out for help, but no one listened. Politicians were worried that addressing the issue of grooming by British Pakistani men would "give oxygen" to racism
'As for my social workers, they put me in a children's home, where my abusers collected me in taxis every single day. When they brought me back in the early hours of the morning, the staff even paid the fare.

Are you sure he wasn't just messing with you? You DID just say he called you a racist jokingly.
