Six men have been convicted of child sexual abuse offences as part of the ongoing investigation into the exploitation of vulnerable teenagers in Rotherham.

The men have been convicted of a range of offences including the rape and sexual assault of seven girls between 1998 and 2002.

The court found the vulnerable girls were groomed and exploited by the men, who gave them alcohol and drugs.

The case is part of the National Crime Agency’s investigation into allegations of abuse and exploitation in Rotherham.

Senior investigating officer at Operation Stovewood, Philip Marshall, said: 'Today, six more men join the other 14 who have already been convicted of sexually abusing young girls in Rotherham, going back as far as 1997.

'They exploited vulnerable girls for their own sexual gratification and I am glad that today, they have been held accountable for their devastating actions.'

Kate Hurst of the CPS said: 'We were able to prove that these predators targeted and then abused girls in Rotherham for their own sexual satisfaction.'

The men are: Masaued Malik, Aftab Hussain, Abid Saddiq, Sharaz Hussain, and two others who can't be named for legal reasons.
