DETECTIVES have been given a further 12 hours to question five men arrested on suspicion of grooming and abusing young teenage girls.

The men – aged between 18 and 21 - were arrested in 6am raids in Banbury yesterday and are suspected of serious sex crimes against three girls aged between 13 and 16 in the town between 2011 and this year.

A sixth man, aged 20, was arrested later yesterday morning and can be held for another three hours before police have to release him or apply to extend the time he can be held for.
