THE youngest victim of an Asian sex gang in Britain was just eight, the Daily Star can reveal.
Her parents had to move house to keep the child out of the clutches of the mob who scoured their streets hunting white girls to abuse.
She was among a number of children being groomed by the gang of mainly British-born Pakistani Muslims in Huddersfield, West Yorks.
The shocking case was revealed by Gill Gibbons, chief executive of the Coalition for the Removal of Pimping, who helped the youngster and her parents handle the horrific ordeal. The organisation has also worked with a gang victim aged only 10 in Blackburn, Lancs.
Ms Gibbons said although the victims were getting younger, most were not sexually abused until they were 13 in a bid to get round the law.
Girls over that age have to make complaints against their abusers themselves before authorities take action and the thugs are confident they can frighten the young teens off.
“The girls are getting younger,” said Ms Gibbons. “Some kids can look a lot older than they actually are. We once dealt with an eight-year-old girl.
“In these cases there hasn’t been any sex with the girls but the gangs try to indoctrinate them and get them ready for when they are a bit older.”
The organisation, which is in the frontline of the battle against sex gangs, has appointed parent officer Lindsay Dalton to help families of victims.
Gill said: “It is not only the children who are victims but the whole family become victims of these criminal gangs.”
