Three men have been arrested as part of an ongoing investigation into non-recent child sexual exploitation in Bury.
A 48-year-old man and two men, aged 49, were arrested at separate addresses in the Bury area earlier today (Wednesday 26 May 2021).
They have been taken to custody to be interviewed on suspicion of child sex offences.
The offences are believed to have taken place between 1996 and 1999 concerning girls aged between 13 and 16-years-old.
The victims are receiving regular support from specialist officers and partner agencies.
Detective Inspector Ian Partington, of GMP Bury's Complex Safeguarding Hub, said: "This morning's activity is the latest stage of our investigation into reports of non-recent child sexual exploitation made to us in 2018.
"Our wide-ranging and thorough enquiries continue with the aim of identifying suspects and bringing them in for questioning, and we will leave no stone unturned in pursuing every possible line of enquiry to bring offenders to justice."
