Detectives from the Homicide and Major Inquiry Team swooped on four addresses in the Halifax area on Wednesday morning and arrested three men aged between 20 and 45 on suspicion of serious sexual offences.

They were all detained in police custody for questioning.

In May, four men were arrested on suspicion of serious sexual offences after detectives from the major inquiry team visited six addresses in the Halifax area.

It is not known whether the arrests are linked to any of the sex gang scandals across the UK this year.
