“We received a report that a number of girls in their mid to late-teens were being exploited by men who have been travelling from outside the county for sexual gain.”

The police spokesperson said it is being alleged that the girls have been involved in conversations with men via mobile phones and have met in person.

“We are following a number of lines of enquiry to establish the circumstances, and we are now appealing to anyone else who might have information which could help our investigation to come forward,” said the spokesperson.

Lincolnshire police say they are keen to hear from anyone who might have been in conversations with, or approached by, men in this way and to “please remember that you are not in trouble, and we are here to help you. Your identity will always be protected”.
