Police: 'This has been a complex investigation'

This has been a complex investigation that was originally launched in October 2012 when an initial complaint was made to Greater Manchester Police.

Since that time, we have carried out extensive and wide-ranging inquiries and interviewed a number of people as part of that investigation.

It has been important those inquiries were carried out thoroughly so that, in consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, we have been able to secure a number of charges.

We will continue to support all those women who have come forward and offer them whatever welfare they need through the use of specially-trained officers.
