Child sex suspect is arrested at Manchester Airport

By Dave Higgens

A man wanted in connection with child sexual exploitation in Rotherham has been arrested at Manchester Airport.

South Yorkshire Police said Basharat Hussain (38) was detained at the airport by their officers in connection with "a string of non-recent sexual exploitation offences" in the town.

Hussain, of no fixed address, was arrested after a warrant for his arrest was granted by Sheffield Magistrates Court, the force said.

A spokesman said he has been charged with gross indecency towards a child, inciting a child to commit gross indecency, procuring a female to have sex with a man, indecent assault, rape, false imprisonment and procuring a female to become a prostitute.

The offences are alleged to have occurred between 1996 and 2001. The arrest was made as part of Operation Clover, a South Yorkshire Police investigation.

Hussain was bailed after he was arrested earlier this year and was thought to have fled to Pakistan.
