An investigation into child grooming and sex abuse in Derbyshire has resulted in nine arrests. Derbyshire police launched the operation after a girl came forward to say that a number of men had groomed and sexually abused her.
Seven more alleged victims have been identified as part of the inquiry, run by Derbyshire Constabulary's Child Exploitation Investigation unit.
One suspect has been charged with 14 offences against seven individuals and is now being held in custody prior to trial.
Charges include rape of a child, inciting a child to prostitution and supplying controlled drugs. The other men are on bail as the investigation continues.
Police have not disclosed where in Derbyshire the offences took place and no further details have been released. The offences are included in a report which will be put before Derbyshire police's Chief Constable Mick Creedon and Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhinsa at a public meeting at the force's headquarters in Ripley on Monday.
A statement in the report says: "In January 2017 a report was made to social care that a young female had been groomed and sexually abused by a number of different males in the preceding months.
"This investigation was taken on by the Child Exploitation Investigation Unit. A further seven victims were identified and nine male suspects have been arrested."
It says the man currently in custody "has been charged with 14 offences against seven victims ranging from rape of a child under 13 in December 2012 to inciting a child to prostitution and supplying controlled drugs".
It adds the investigation is ongoing in relation to the other alleged offenders and victims.
Any odds on whether these perverts are all Pakistani?

Seven former child footballers in Derbyshire
say they were abused by coaches

SV2 is working with former footballers who say they were abused as children
Seven former child footballers in Derbyshire have come forward to say they were abused by their coaches.
The ex-boy players, now all grown men, say they were abused as children by "powerful and imposing" coaches who could "make or break futures".
Derbyshire-based charity Supporting Victims of Sexual Violence said the men have come forward after allegations were made public against former coach Barry Bennell, 63, who last month denied 20 child sex offences against four boys between 1980 and 1987 - more than half of which are alleged to have happened in Derbyshire. He will reappear on July 3 at Liverpool Crown Court.
Sally Goodwin, chief executive of the charity, known as SV2, said the football victims had only found the bravery to come forward after allegations against Bennell surfaced. Before those claims came to light, the charity, which is based in Codnor, was working with no football victims.

Bryan Wren had denied the charge, which dated back to December 2015 and took place at a house in the city. His crime came to light when the victim told her parents she had been "touched" by Wren and they contacted the police.
He was arrested and questioned over the allegation and denied anything had happened. But Wren, of Mundy Street, was found guilty by a jury following a trial at Derby Crown Court.

Rapist has been jailed for 18 years after
sexually assaulting two girls
By Burton Mail
By Martin Naylor
A rapist from Derbyshire has been jailed for 18 years after sexually assaulting two girls. Derby Crown Court was told Peter Parker's offences dated back to the late 1980s and early 1990s.
The 50-year-old was accused of specimen charges of sexually assaulting one girl and raping another, both under the age of 18, over the course of several years. He had denied the charges and took the case to trial, where he faced two counts of indecent assault, one count of rape and one of gross indecency.
Parker, of Griffin Close, Alvaston, in Derby, pleaded not guilty to the offences but was convicted by a jury at the crown court. He has now been jailed for 18 years and must sign the sex offenders' register for life.
Detective Inspector Steve Shaw, who leads a team of detectives investigating sexual offences in Derby, said Parker's conviction proved how seriously such reports are taken. He said: "The offences in this case date back nearly three decades and it is purely thanks to the courage and determination of his victims that Parker has finally been brought to justice. He might have felt that he would escape punishment for his crimes, but this case proves that no matter how long ago these offences take place, we will pour all our efforts into investigating them.
