URMSTON Bookshop is hosting an evening with Maggie Oliver, where she will talk about her new book, her life, and her actions to secure convictions in what is now one of the most notorious grooming cases in the UK.

Maggie will be at Urmston Library tonight at 7pm.

Maggie is best known as the detective-turned-whistle blower who resigned from Greater Manchester Police in 2012 in order to expose the Rochdale grooming scandal.

Prior to that she worked in the Serious Crime Division of GMP for many years and was commended for her work on countless gangland murders, shootings, kidnappings, rapes and witness protection jobs.

Her experiences on the Rochdale child sexual exploitation case were portrayed by Lesley Sharp in the BBC award-winning drama Three Girls, for which she acted as a consultant.

She is now an established broadcast commentator and speaker on current affairs and human rights.

Maggie will also be talking about The Maggie Oliver Foundation. Tickets for the evening cost £3.00; this includes a glass of wine and can be redeemed against the purchase of a book on the evening. To book tickets call 0161 747 7442, email books@urmston-bookshop.co.uk, or visit www.eventbrite.co.uk
