Child sex exploitation raids: Two more men arrested

Two more men have been arrested as part of a major investigation into the sexual exploitation of teenage girls in Greater Manchester.

The men were detained on Wednesday and remain in custody on suspicion of human trafficking for sexual exploitation.

Fourteen men have so far been arrested following raids on Tuesday in which 12 men were initially arrested.

Girls from Stockport are said to have been given drink and drugs and taken to sex parties in Manchester and Salford.

All those who were held by police on Tuesday have been released bail.

'Some in care'

Officers have spoken to more than 30 girls as part of the inquiry including victims and witnesses.

The investigation is one of the largest carried out by Greater Manchester Police (GMP)'s Major Incident Team and involves about 100 detectives.

Police said they also found drugs at several addresses which were raided.

GMP said some of the girls were as young as 14 and some were living in care at the time.

It is thought there may be more victims and police have urged anyone with information to contact them or to speak to Childline, Barnado's or the NSPCC.
