“Six men named as subject of anti-grooming orders”

Six men from Birmingham have been named by a high court judge as being the subject of anti-grooming orders, which were put in place to ensure they have no contact with vulnerable girls.

The injunctions were obtained by Birmingham city council to ensure the men have no further contact with a 17-year-old girl who was found in their company. It is believed to be the first time such a legal device has been used to safeguard vulnerable juveniles.

The injunctions – which also bar the men from approaching any girl under the age of 18 with whom they were not previously associated in a public place – could be adopted by other local authorities.
