Rotherham abuse trial: Six guilty over child sex exploitation


Three brothers and their uncle are among six people convicted of the sexual exploitation of teenage girls in Rotherham. Arshid, Basharat and Bannaras Hussain - known as Mad Ash, Bash and Bono - formed a violent, gun-toting, drug-dealing family who appeared to operate with impunity in the South Yorkshire town, a court heard. Women described how they were raped, beaten and passed between abusers and used as prostitutes by a gang led by the three men, who "owned" Rotherham.
