Police have made a number of arrests as part of a child sexual exploitation investigation in Bury.
It follows an investigation launched last June around the Clarence and Openshaw Park areas of Bury.
Nine children have been receiving specialist support during the investigation which has been codenamed Burgos by Greater Manchester Police.
Officers have increased the number of visible police patrols and are working with the community as part of a wider disruption plan.
Superintendent Rick Jackson of GMP’s Bury borough, said: “Tackling child sexual exploitation is a priority for GMP and we will continue to work closely with our partners to safeguard children and prosecute offenders.
“It is vital that we hear from anyone who has been a victim, or knows something that could help with this investigation, please be assured there are measures in place to support people who come forward.
“Please, if you have information, contact the Bury Phoenix team on 0161 856 8002 or 101, reports can also be made anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
