Thirty people will go on trial charged with offences relating to the alleged sexual exploitation of children in Huddersfield, a judge has ruled.

Twenty five of the defendants appeared at Leeds Crown Court on Friday. The men have been charged with a total of 78 offences, including rape, sexual assault and trafficking.

The alleged offences date back to a period between 2005 and 2012, and relate to five female complainants then aged between 12 and 18.

Judge Simon Phillips QC said all the cases will be dealt with across three separate trials beginning in September 2019. The final trial will not begin until April 2020.

Eighteen of those who appeared in court on Friday were out on bail, with seven others in custody. A further five defendants who are custody did not appear, but were represented in court.

Only 20 of the 30 defendants can be named because of reporting restrictions.
