  12. Eighteen men accused of sex offences found not guilty


    Eighteen men accused of grooming and sexually abusing teenage girls in Oxfordshire have been found not guilty.

    They were arrested in March and April last year as part of Thames Valley Police's Operation Nautical.

    Seven Oxford men were acquitted of dozens of charges, including conspiracy to rape, after a trial at Oxford Crown Court that ended in December.

    Now 11 men, mostly from Banbury, have been cleared of similar offences after the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) dropped their cases.

    A legal restriction previously prevented reporting of the first trial. The cases related to alleged offences committed against three girls between 2008 and 2015.
