She had been central to the investigation and persuaded vulnerable and reluctant girls to give evidence against the paedophiles who had sexually abused them for years.
But one of the victims she convinced to speak ended up being portrayed as a member of the grooming gang in the subsequent trial.
Maggie felt betrayed, ashamed and resigned. She became a vocal critic of how police had handled the case.
She resigned in disgust at the treatment of one the girls who was originally portrayed as a ‘madam’ who had introduced the men to a string of vulnerable girls for a finder’s fee of £10.
The girl was having sex with some of the men herself - sometimes one after the other.
Lastly we recommend Maggie Oliver is placed as the head of a task force to combat "Islamist grooming" in Rochdale & surrounding areas.
