Six people have been found guilty of the “systemic” sexual abuse of teenage girls in Rotherham.

Brothers Arshid and Basharat Hussain were convicted for multiple rapes and indecent assaults in the Yorkshire town, while a third brother, Bannaras, had previously pleaded guilty to 10 charges including rape and indecent assault prior to the trial.

The trio’s uncle, 53-year-old Qurban Ali was found guilty of conspiracy to rape.

Two unrelated women, Karen MacGregor, 58, and Shelley Davies, 40, were found guilty of conspiracy to procure prostitutes and false imprisonment.

The jury at Sheffield Crown Court heard how the group “targeted”, “sexualised”, and “degraded” 15 victims between 1987 and 2003.

All six people convicted will be sentenced on Friday.

Brothers Majid Bostan, 37 and Sajid Bostan, 38, were cleared of all charges against them.
