Rotherham sex abuse survivor criticises payment to paedophile informant

Rotherham Politics

A woman abused by a sex gang leader in Rotherham has criticised a decision to pay a child rapist £10,000 to infiltrate a paedophile ring.

Sammy Woodward, now in her 30s but who was 14 when she was abused, spoke out after a convicted sex offender, who drugged an underage girl and invited another man to rape her after him, was paid thousands of pounds to help detectives secure prosecutions against a sex gang in Newcastle.

The informant was recruited by Northumbria Police to work on an undercover operation, one strand of which, known as Operation Shelter, has just finished going through the courts and led to the conviction of 18 members of an Asian grooming gang which targeted underage girls and vulnerable young women in Newcastle between 2010 and 2014.
