Highlight/Context

Why police in the UK may have been negligent “in 90% of cases” and have also failed to stop IS fighters and other potential terrorists entering the country, they are devoting considerable resources to ensuring any Brits complaining online will be tracked down by the hundreds of police assigned to stopping “hate speech”.




The Times:

The NSPCC has said that it is concerned by “deeply troubling” and “unacceptable” police failures to protect children highlighted by The Times this morning.

The Metropolitan police, Britain’s biggest force, has not improved its safeguarding of children at risk of sexual exploitation and rape since a damning report found systemic failings a year ago.

A spokesman for the NSPCC said: “This report appears to show that attitudes to abused and exploited children are still falling short in our biggest police force. It’s deeply troubling that handling of child protection investigations appears to have got worse, not better, in the space of a year.
