Rotherham sex abuse trial: Three men and two women found guilty of sexually exploiting teenage girls

The 2010 trial in Rotherham did not even receive national reporting. Lawyer in Rotherham says that he knew names of only 100 victims (out of 1400 known victims). Police in South Yorkshire now looking at 300 potential suspects and other prosecutions in the area will come to trial. There are 60 officers now working in CSE.

One girl was locked in a house for weeks as she was forced to have sex with a succession of Asian men in the town, jurors heard.

Another girl, aged 12, was forced to perform sex acts with a group of men in a car after she was picked up from a children's home, prosecutors said.

And one victim was allegedly called a 'white b**** and trash' after she was forced to perform a sex act.

In 2010, five men - Umar Razaq, Razwan Razaq, Zafran Ramzan, Adil Hussain, Mohsin Khan - were found guilty of a string of sex offences against girls aged between 12 and 16.

This case provoked some media attention but did not gain nationwide coverage.

South Yorkshire Police says it now has a team of more than 60 officers working on child sexual exploitation (CSE).

Its joint operation with the council and Crown Prosecution Service - Operation Clover - has resulted in the current prosecution and others currently moving through the criminal justice system.

The National Crime Agency has also been brought in to investigate historical crimes and last year announced it was looking at 300 potential suspects.

The police and the NCA have said that successful prosecutions are the key to building trust with the survivors of child sexual exploitation in Rotherham.

But, also last year, David Greenwood, a lawyer who represents 58 women who were subjected to sexual abuse by gangs of men in Rotherham between 1996 and 2012, said he was aware of fewer than 100 victims who had come forward.
