Summary: 

The film, My Dangerous Loverboy, was made following reports of vulnerable girls being passed around by groups of men for sex in Yorkshire, claims the producer. An educational film warning schoolgirls about Asian grooming gangs was canned seven years ago by ­officials scared of being branded racist, it has been claimed.

Called My Dangerous Loverboy, it was specially commissioned in 2007 by child protection chiefs based in Yorkshire – rocked by revelations 1,400 girls were abused by Asian gangs in the town of Rotherham between 1997 and 2013.
