Legal help secured for ‘At Risk’ CSE family

Legal help secured for ‘At Risk’ CSE family

The Telford family at the centre of the CSE related firearms threat, now have a QC to look at their case.

Having today met with the family who received the Notice of Threat to Personal Safety, Lucy Allan MP, made the following statement.

“All residents have a right to expect that the Police will take every step necessary to ensure their personal safety when there has been a serious threat to life.

I am concerned that a Telford family has been threatened by persons equipped with firearms who have made threats to attend their address to retrieve material evidence in relation to the Telford CSE Inquiry. I note West Mercia Police will take what steps they can to minimise the risk, but it is of significant concern that the police say they are unable to protect this family despite the serious nature of this threat.

I have been working with this family for over a year and I am aware of the details of the case, having been furnished with the case files by the family. I was able to secure pro- bono legal advice for the family by a QC. I urge the Police to take every measure to identify the source of this threat and to keep the family and their representatives updated. In a case of this nature, I believe there is a duty on the police to locate this family in a place of safety as a matter of urgency.

In relation to the evidence regarding CSE crimes, I have asked the new CSE inquiry chairman to contact the family to take steps to secure this information.

The Attorney General and the Minister for Safeguarding have been fully aware of this particular case since March 2018 when I first raised it with them and in Parliament. In the light of this Police Notice I will be escalating the matter to the Home Secretary. I have also asked for the intervention of the Police and Crime Commissioner, John Campion, to urgently ensure the safety of this Telford family.

It is because of cases and victims like these that the Telford CSE Inquiry is of such importance to our community. This is why I have continued to push the Council to act without delay in setting up the Inquiry.”

    well done ,lucy allen, for the police to be unable to protect witness’s in any criminal matter is an unacceptable state of affairs ,in civilised societies the upholding of the rule of law, at all costs, is a primary requirement ,it should be a matter of urgency to secure the evidence,protect the family,and locate and neutralise the threat .

      Lucy Allan has been fighting this for years.
      The snakes are people like you making a political comment.
      She has stood up and fought for this inquiry – what have you done

    Osman notices are given when intelligence is received that a person or persons have had threats made against them but the person or persons wish no action taken
