A further three men have been arrested in connection with an investigation into child sexual exploitation offences in Bristol, police have said.

An Avon and Somerset police spokesman said it brought the total number of arrests in the inquiry to eight.

He said the men were all in their 20s, with two remaining in custody for questioning and the third man released on bail.

Five men previously arrested have been bailed until late June.

The offences being investigated are alleged to have happened in the Bristol area between 2011 and 2012, and involve three victims, who were all aged between 12 and 15 at the time.
