Girl, 6, abused by classmates for 2 years
Apr 2, 2010
LONDON: In a shocking case, a 6-year-old British girl has been physically and sexually abused routinely allegedly by 23 of her classmates.
The girl was stripped daily and routinely assaulted by the pupils in the grounds of the Welsh school, but it took two years for officials to investigate the victims torment, the Daily Mail reported. However, due to the young ages of the accused and lack of evidence little action could be taken, the school and local council said.
In a recent interview, the child's mother said, "My daughter was just like any other little girl. I will never forget the look on her face... the fear on her face. I said ‘It is OK you can tell Mummy' and then it all started to come out".
"And she was telling me things that I think every mother dreads to hear from their daughter. It was horrendous what she'd gone through." The mother moved her daughter to a school in another area but not until she took legal action that the authority carried out a serious case review.
