A group of men who abused teenage girls in a vehicle they called the 's**gwagon' have been jailed for a total of nearly 90 years.

The men - aged 36 to 48 - befriended the vulnerable girls as young as 13 before plying them drink and drugs at 'parties' in Oxford.

The eight men - branded 'predatory and cynical' by a judge - have now been jailed for between seven and a half and fifteen years each.

Judge Peter Ross said the investigation into the gang had uncovered 'systematic and widespread grooming'.

Investigating officer DS Nicola Douglas branded the gang's crimes 'abhorrent', adding: 'None of the perpetrators have admitted their guilt or shown any remorse.'

She praised the victims for coming forward, saying: 'The impact of these offences on the victims, their families and relationships cannot be underestimated. 

'There are devastating consequences which last long after the offence is committed.

'Without these women telling their stories, perpetrators who exploit and commit serious sexual offences against some of the most vulnerable children and young adults in our communities will remain hidden, unpunished and free to do more harm.'

She added: 'I know nothing can ever undo the unimaginable suffering they were put through, but I hope it gives them some comfort to know these men have finally been held accountable for the abhorrent crimes they committed.'

Speaking after the case, prosecutor Adrian Foster said: 'These cases are, in effect, organised crime, and we approached this case in the same way we would approach any organised crime case by making connections, and building an understanding of criminal networks.

'We worked closely with Thames Valley Police from early in the investigation to help build the strongest possible prosecution case. 

'Their investigators, and Crown Prosecution Service lawyers and caseworkers, have worked tirelessly to bring this difficult prosecution to court. I thank all who bravely came forward to provide evidence for the prosecution.

'The emotional impact on the victims and their family of the abhorrent actions of these men is impossible to quantify. I hope that these sentences give some small comfort to them.'
