Nine men charged with sexually abusing one Rochdale girl have been released on bail, some until December.

The men, all of Asian and African backgrounds, were arrested in May for a string of allegations against one girl, including rape, inciting and having sex with a minor, but were released from police custody within days.

Officers charged the men yesterday and they will each be brought before magistrates over the next six weeks.

[Those in court: Freddy Kendakumana, Roheez Khan, Chola Chansa, Ali Asghar Hussain Shah, Anjam Masood, Asrar Haider, Abdul Huk, Mohammed Rafiq, Mohammed Ali]
