A Derby charity has praised the bravery of the victims of five men who have been found guilty of paying for the sexual services of a child.
Mark Adaoui, Ijaz Ahmed, John Shaw, Anthony Lambert and Stefan Godfrey were all convicted following a trial at Derby Crown Court. They will be sentenced at a later date.
Five other men, who formed part of the same police investigation, have already admitted sexual offences involving children.
Safe and Sound Derby, which helps children and young people who are being, or who are at risk of being sexually exploited, worked closely with local agencies throughout the operation.
