Yeovil sexual exploitation investigation: Two arrested

Two men have been arrested as part of an investigation into the sexual exploitation of girls and young women in the Yeovil area.

The 37-year-old and 26-year-old have been arrested on suspicion of rape and are being questioned by Avon and Somerset Police.

It follows a police investigation into sex offences and trafficking offences that started last August.

In December, two men and a woman were charged as part of the same inquiry.

Three men, who were also arrested in December, are due to answer bail later this month and next month.
