A FRESH date has been set for a Court of Appeal hearing to decide if the sentences of four men jailed for grooming and raping a vulnerable girl should be increased.

The men, aged between 30 and 42, were jailed for a combined 49 years in February at Bradford Crown Court.

A challenge was made to the Attorney General's office that the jail terms for Hassan Basharat, Baber Hussain, Omar Safdar, and Imran Sabir, were lenient.

The case was referred to the Court of Appeal and a date was initially set for a hearing in May.

But that hearing was postponed, and a new date of June 17 has now been arranged.

The four men were jailed over multiple counts of raping the same girl, between March 2009 and March 2010.

Basharat, 32, of Highfield Road, Keighley, was jailed for 12 years for one count of rape and conspiring to rape.

Hussain, 36, of Thorn Lane, Heaton, was jailed for 13 years for seven counts of rape.
