What do the men pictured above all have in common?

If you said they're all from "Calderdale" in the UK, congrats, you should work in the media.

Via BBC:
Fifteen men who "systematically" groomed and sexually abused teenage girls in Halifax have been jailed.

They were convicted of child sex offences including rape, grooming and trafficking during three separate trials at Leeds Crown Court.

Prosecutors praised the "immense courage and bravery" of the two victims who gave evidence against the men.

The longest sentence passed was 25 years in what was described as a "complex and lengthy operation".

The gang of men abused a young girl in Halifax and Bradford between 2009 and 2011, the Crown Prosecution (CPS) said.

Another victim was also sexually assaulted by one of the gang members.

Incidentally, this story has been pretty much ignored in the UK press, I can only find three articles on it and all of them say the men are from "Calderdale" or "Halifax" or "Bradford."
