The Metropolitan Police force "could be sitting on a Rotherham-style sexual grooming gang situation", a London Assembly Member has claimed.
The accusation, from UKIP group leader Peter Whittle, comes as a report by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services reveals that Scotland Yard failed to properly handle 90 per cent of recent child protection cases.
Earlier this month, the Met's most senior officer responded to concerns by claiming grooming gangs had been part of British society for "centuries".
According to The Times, the UK's largest police force is now worse at helping and protecting children at risk of sexual exploitation and rape than it was a year ago.
Inspectors reviewed a random sample of 135 cases in November concerning various types of abuse, including possible child sexual exploitation, missing children, and domestic abuse.
Almost 93 per cent were said to be "inadequate or required improvement" and there was a "disappointing quality of investigations and outcomes," as well as 18 cases that were sent back to the force for further investigation, the report found.
