UK: Six-man Muslim grooming gang begins long jail sentences after being convicted for sexually exploiting children

A gang of six men have been jailed for a total of 31 years after being convicted of a string of sexual offences against teenager girls.

The offences, which ranged from inciting sexual activity with a child, to rape, happened in cars, woods or at the defendants’ homes in Banbury, Oxfordshire.

Oxford Crown Court heard how they lured victims to parties organised on social media and then began sexually abusing them.

The men were found guilty in March and have now been handed sentences of between three and nine years in jail.
