Shakil Munir, 32, of Tollesby Road, Middlesbrough, had denied five charges involving two victims aged 13 and 14.

Two other men on trial alongside Munir were found not guilty. Junaid Butt and Ibrar Mahmood, both 18, were cleared of all charges against them.

The jury at Teesside Crown Court will continue considering its verdict in respect of a 17-year-old on Thursday.

Munir was found guilty of four counts of sexual activity with a child and one of child abduction after a trial lasting more than five weeks.

Mr Butt and Mr Mahmood were unanimously cleared earlier.

An 18-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to child sex offences.
