A man who was found by police with two vulnerable teenage girls has been jailed.

Rashid Harif, (24), was under a slavery and trafficking order when the missing girls, aged 14 and 15, were discovered in his flat.

The order specifically prohibited Harif from contacting and being in the presence of any child under 18, unless unavoidable as part of reasonable daily life.
