The defendants, who were teenagers at the time of the alleged incidents, denied all the charges when they appeared before a judge at Birmingham Crown Court yesterday.

The trial will be held on December 2.

Sultan, of no fixed abode, was remanded in custody until then, while the others, Hussain, of Acacia Drive, Leegomery; Rizwan, of Mafeking Road, Hadley; Younas, of Regent Street, Wellington, and Akhtar, of Victoria Avenue, Wellington, were all granted unconditional bail.
