Peterborough 'abuse' trial delayed

The trial of five Peterborough men accused of trafficking and raping teenage girls has been delayed.

The men were arrested as part of a Cambridgeshire Police investigation into the alleged abuse of girls vulnerable to sexual exploitation.

Prosecutor Patricia Lynch was due to open the case at Cambridge Crown Court in a trial expected to last up to eight weeks.

But judge Mark Lucraft delayed the case until Monday 31 March for further legal argument.
