Two more men have been arrested in connection with an ongoing inquiry into grooming and child sexual exploitation in Rochdale.

The men, both 33, were detained on suspicion of sexual assault and rape.

Their arrests are in relation to one of five girls who gave evidence in a recent trial that saw nine men convicted over child sex grooming.

All nine were jailed for crimes including rape and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child.

During the case, Liverpool Crown Court heard the youngster was also abused from the age of 15 by four men, who she only knew by their nicknames.

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said the two men had been released on bail pending further inquiries.
