Oldham child sex inquiry: Three men arrested

Three men have been arrested on suspicion of child sex offences in Greater Manchester.

The arrests follow police searches in Oldham on Tuesday as part of a child sexual exploitation investigation.

Police said two girls, aged 15 and 16 from Derbyshire and Oldham respectively, spoke to officers after they went missing from home.

The three men, aged 25, 30 and 18, were held on suspicion of sexual activity with a child under 16.

The 25 and 30-year-old men were also arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit a sexual offence with a child under 16 and human trafficking.

All three have been bailed until July.

A 17-year-old boy arrested on suspicion of rape in February has also been bailed until July, police said.
