Young girls were sexually exploited by a group of men who subjected them to depravity, and perversion, a court heard today. The court clerk was given permission to sit as he read the long list of charges, over a twenty minute period. Noel Lucas QC, prosecuting, said:
"The defendants, and others not before the court, used and abused the six complainants persistently over long periods of time, sometimes in groups, for their own sexual gratification and the sexual gratification of others."
"The depravity of what was done to the complainants was extreme."
