Rotherham sex abuse suspects bailed by police
Five Rotherham men arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to rape have been bailed by police.
The men were arrested in Rotherham by officers from the National Crime Agency as part of Operation Stovewood – an independent probe into child sexual exploitation and abuse in Rotherham between 1997 and 2013.
The suspects have been bailed until April.
Operation Stovewood was launched after an independent report into child sexual exploitation in Rotherham revealed that 1,400 children were abused by men of largely Pakistani heritage between 1997 and 2013 while those in authority failed to act.
