James O'Brien Dismantles Myth Of Grooming Gangs Being Under-Reported

Groups led by Tommy Robinson insist that there is a media cover-up about the grooming gangs in Rotherham, Rochdale, Huddersfield, Oxford and other towns.
But James points out that he's been talking about it for seven and a half years on the radio - and the reason we know about it all is because of reporting in the press.
Speaking on his LBC show, he said: "Seven years plus of seeing these reports catalogued in the British media. You can intone the list of towns in which these scandals have taken place. The list is long.
