Five men have appeared in court charged with a string of sexual offences against a 16-year-old girl.

A total of 22 charges have been brought against the men, aged 20, 22, 25, 27 and 39.

It follows a police investigation into the alleged exploitation of a teenager. The charges include: trafficking for sexual exploitation; arranging or facilitating prostitution; controlling a child involved in prostitution; inciting child prostitution and paying for sexual services.

No pleas were entered during yesterday's hearing, at Leicester Magistrates' Court, but it was decided the charges were so serious that the case could only be dealt by a crown court judge.

Magistrates have issued an order banning publication of the defendants' names, addresses and dates of birth.

The Leicester Mercury challenged the order in court – but was unsuccessful.

The men were remanded back into custody to appear at court again later this month.
