PETITION: We demand a public inquiry for grooming victim Charlene Downes

150,000 Target


Charlene Downes (pictured) disappeared on 1 November 2003, when she was just fourteen years old, from her home town of Blackpool.

She was targeted by an Islamist grooming gang who abducted her, subjected her to sexual abuse, murdered her, then minced her body into kebab meat.

Charlene's murder was part of a protracted local Islamist grooming problem in Blackpool, where dozens of underage girls have been targeted, "swapping sex for food, cigarettes and affection".

According to an internal police report, Downes was one of sixty girls in Blackpool, some as young as eleven, who had been groomed by men to carry out sex acts.

What happened to Charlene was horrific, but the only people to have been convicted of any crimes are Charlene's brother and sister, both convicted of "assaulting" the suspects accused of murdering her.

After two failed trials to convict Charlene's murderers, the suspects were released. One of them went on to be convicted of assaulting an eighteen year old girl.

We demand justice for Charlene Downes, regardless of how much time has passed. She was an innocent victim of a grooming gang and deserves to be remembered.

Britain First and the family of Charlene Downes are calling for a public inquiry to look once again at the evidence and the failings by Lancashire Police which allowed a gang of paedophile murderers to walk free.

    This is so sad it brings tears to my eyes and a lump in my throat. Its about time we got tough on these grooming gangs, we should bring back hanging for these offences and hire judges with backbone.

    It’s time to fight for our people. This girl is just one of many who the British government has let down. Islam is simply not conducive!

    Truth seems to have fallen in the public square, and justice struggles to enter. Those charged with the responsibility of exercising their duty of care have failed miserably. They don’t seem to care a damn about it or about the victims and their families. What a crying shame. What an amazing lack of compassion. Get on with the job you are getting paid to do. Get on with the job that you lack the courage or the common decency to get done. Get up. Get going. Get justice done. Why do you need the common decent citizens to tell you to do your job? Do you not have a job description? (show less)
