Men referred to victims as "fresh meat"

Two men have been found guilty of drugging and raping vulnerable underage girls they found walking the streets in West Yorkshire.

Shazad Rehman, 30, and Bilal Hussain, 23, denied abusing the girls, who were picked up as the pair cruised the streets of Keighley and Halifax.

The court heard how Rehman and Hussain plied the girls with alcohol and cannabis and took them to hotels for sex. Rehman referred to the girls as "fresh meat", the court heard.

The trial heard how one of the girls, who was 14 when the attacks happened in 2010 and 2011, was repeatedly raped.

Prosecutors told the jury how the men acted together and deliberately went out to target vulnerable victims who had problems and were looking for attention.

The men used the Alder House Hotel in Batley and the Campanile Hotel in Bradford.
