Survivors of Cannock Chase Abuse Urged to Contact Police

Survivors of abuse in Cannock Chase are urged to contact police after a woman alleged that a well-known politician sexually abused her when she was a child.

32-year-old Esther Baker said that the unnamed politician was part of a VIP paedophile ring that sexually abused children in Staffordshire during the 1980s and 90s.

Ms Baker made the allegations during an interview with Sky News and says that she has spoken out about what happened to her in the hope that other witnesses will come forward.

The people who allegedly abused Ms Baker are among 261 high-profile individuals who are being investigated as part of Operation Hydrant, a coordinated police operation looking into abuse carried out by over 1,400 suspects.

Survivors of Abuse Should Contact Police As Soon As Possible

Detectives leading Operation Hydrant believe that the number of people abused by the people they are investigating could run into the hundreds of thousands.

More and more brave survivors of abuse are finding the courage to speak out as the police investigations are giving them confidence that their abusers will be brought to justice.

If you suffered abuse at Cannock Chase then please contact police as soon as possible.
