The case, estimated to last up to three weeks, was adjourned until today.

Aabidali Mubarak Ali (39), Rakib Iacub (20) and Wajid Usman (22) deny a total of 22 offences between them.

The prosecution allege the defendants paid, or offered to pay, a 16-year-old girl for sexual services, knowing she was under the legal age of 18 to provide such services, between last November and January.

Ali, of Guthlaxton Street, Highfields, Leicester, denies five counts of paying for the sexual services of a child, five of trafficking within the UK for sexual exploitation and one of facilitating child prostitution.

Iacub, of Maynard Road, Highfields, denies four counts of paying or promising to pay for sexual services of a child, two of facilitating child prostitution and one of trafficking within the UK for sexual exploitation.

Usman, of no fixed address, has pleaded not guilty to one count of paying for sexual services of a child and two of inciting child pornography, by allegedly encouraging the teenager to send him indecent images of herself.
