IN her front room in Telford, a bright blue panic alarm sits on top of the Freeview TV box — ready to summon police officers in under five minutes.
Jenny has good reason to be afraid. We told yesterday how her relative’s house was torched in an arson attack, apparently to silence her before she identified members of a notorious child sex abuse gang.
Jenny — not her real name — is a victim of decades of hidden child abuse that plagued the Shropshire town, which was only recently thrust into the spotlight after seven men were convicted of grooming and rape charges.
Today she is terrified after police asked her for information as part of a new inquiry into claims 1,000 schoolgirls were drugged and abused since the 1980s.
When The Sun meets her the curtains are half-drawn at 2pm. She twitches as she sits on the couch, glancing to the windows each time a car passes.
Only once you hear her harrowing story do you understand why her nerves are so frayed.
