Rotherham abuse trial: Jury retires to consider verdicts

A jury has started considering its verdicts in the trial of seven people accused of playing roles in a Rotherham child grooming ring.

The jury was sent out on Wednesday morning in the case, which started in early December.

Five men and two women deny dozens of charges in relation to allegations of historic child sexual exploitation offences relating to 12 now-adult women from the Rotherham area.

While the majority of the allegations relate to the town, some of the offences are said to have occurred in Sheffield, with other allegations relating to Blackpool and London.
