Two men and three teenage boys have been found guilty of a series of rapes and sexual assaults in Peterborough.

Zdeno Mirga, 18, Hassan Abdulla, 33, and three boys, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were convicted at the Old Bailey.

One of the group's victims, referred to in court as Victim A, was a 13-year-old girl with a severe learning disability.

Gillian Beasley, chief executive of Peterborough City Council, said the young girls had been subjected to "regimes of terror" by the group and praised their bravery.
