Jack Straw: Some white girls are 'easy meat' for abuse

Former home secretary Jack Straw has said some UK Pakistani men see white girls as "easy meat" for sex abuse.

The Blackburn MP was speaking after two Asian men who abused girls in Derby were given indeterminate jail terms.

He said there was a "specific problem" in some areas where Pakistani men "target vulnerable white girls".

But Mohammed Shafiq from the Ramadhan Foundation said the former home secretary should be careful not to suggest this was a problem that was ingrained within young Pakistani men.
