    A man has been arrested in connection with an investigation into child sexual exploitation in Bury.

    Since June 2017, the multi-agency investigation, led by the Phoenix CSE team in Bury, has been working to identify offences and suspects to provide specialist support to victims.

    On Tuesday 15 May, a 61-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of inciting child sexual exploitation.

    This arrest brings the total number of people arrested as part of the operation to 14.

    Detective Inspector Jon Kelly of GMP’s Bury borough, said: “Today we have been able to take positive action as a result of information we’ve received from the community and our partner agencies.

    "We have identified around 17 victims of these CSE offences and while this number may increase as the investigation continues, we’ll ensure that every victim receives the support they need at this difficult time.

    “We will continue in our work to identify the people who target vulnerable children and ensure that the victims are able to access the right support.”
