Derby sex gang convicted of grooming and abusing girls

Help

A gang of men has been convicted of systematically grooming and sexually abusing teenage girls in Derbyshire.

Many of the victims were given alcohol or drugs before being forced to have sex in cars, rented houses or hotels across the Midlands.

One girl described a sexual assault involving at least eight men.

The nine men were convicted during three separate trials at Leicester Crown Court, though reporting restrictions have been in place.

Tom Symonds has the background to the case.
