Grooming trial: Defence lawyer's 'concern'

Nine men who ran a child sexual exploitation ring in Greater Manchester have been jailed.

The men from Rochdale and Oldham, who exploited girls as young as 13, were given sentences ranging from four to 19 years.

They were found guilty of offences including rape and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child.

Speaking outside the court, Alias Yousaf, a lawyer for one of the defendants, Adil Khan, said that his client would be lodging an appeal, as he had concerns that a member of the jury had communicated with the British National Party during its deliberations.
