    I wonder what will happen to her now. Poor thing seemed to be unhappy before she went, she will feel even worse now. I hope there is a lot of support for her.

    ...and now she has been taken into care for her own protection. It's the saddest thing.

    A load of disgusting Chav's the less i hear about that incident the better i feel. The interview on bbc with her real father made me physically sick. Can not wait till this bunch of morons are removed from the public eye!

    p.s i bet they did not donate to sports relief!

    You're main thought of this is what type of people the family are ... do you know I really wish that you were removed from my eyes - in fact you are from now.

    I'm a care lawyer. She was probably made the subject of an emergency protection order so that the police and specialists can interview her without any tampering from relatives and in her own time. The fact that she has been found with a relative of the step-father will be concerning the authorities bearing in mind the disclosures the grand parents made about the step father.

    Her mother has denied her hubby/boyfriend ever did anything to her and that her parents are lying. The other children may be at risk and the authorities will be wanting to ensure they get the fullest picture so that they can ensure there are no ongoing child protection issues.

    I suspect this has a long way to go yet, and the family may not come out of it unscathed.

    I don't think we can jump to too many conclusions - maybe she turned to the uncle for help? maybe he abducted her, did she really run away? and if she did, why?....we may never know.

    I have read a couple of posts that are very concerning to me. These people are human beings, they may not be perfect and they may not live like the rest of us but i'm not sure they deserve to be chavs.

    it is such an unpleasant term. I thought we were all above that type of thing bearing in mind many of us have lived our lives being stereotyped.

    Lets move on eh?

    Makes me think of an old saying...

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool then to open one's mouth and remove all doubt....

    Must get tiresome being so pious?

    Regardless of what they are like - they are people, and they are a family, and they have been through a traumatic experience.

    A little charity goes a long way.

    They are chavs, its not me being harsh its a fact. Stereotypes are not just plucked out of thin air they come about due to peoples exeperience of that group in society. Don't get me wrong i am pleased she has turned up well but from what i have seen of that family network its a disaster willing to happen and im sure there are a million stories that could be found in this country that are more distressing. Im just wondering why so much attention has to be put on this mindless set of fools. Society is too soft.

    well that must mean we are all pig faced, mouth stuffing thick idiots for having gotten ourselves so overweight we are classed as obese if we follow that through to its logical conclusion. I know i'm not.

    I understand part of what you are saying but there are times when it just isn't right to say it and communicating it when many people have been so concerned about her is dismissive.

    I deal with families from communities like this every day - they are not all as they seem and many have suffered greatly.
