AN 11th man has been charged with sexually abusing teenage girls by police working on the Operation Bullfinch child exploitation investigation.

Shah-Nawaz Khan, of Botley Road in Oxford, has been charged with sexual activity with a girl aged between 13 and 15 and two counts of sexual assault. The charges relate to two girls, said police.

The 22-year-old is next due to appear at Oxford Crown Court on July 19 for a plea and case management hearing.

Police charged Khan in March but did not release this information to the public. A spokeswoman said this was an unintentional error.

A jury at the Old Bailey is currently deliberating on dozens of charges faced by nine men in relation to allegations that six girls were sexually abused and exploited by a gang.
