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.
