“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.

The injunctions remain in force until the girl turns 18. Altogether 10 men have been served with injunctions – some on an interim basis, some as final orders. The injunctions were served on various dates over the past month.
