Grime artist Solo 45 who held four women against their wall and raped them has jail term increased by six years

He was found guilty of 30 offences of 21 rapes, five counts of false imprisonment, two counts of assault by penetration and two of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

The Attorney General’s Office referred it to the Court of Appeal, which upped it to 30 yesterday.

Judges ruled it had been “unduly lenient”.

The musician, who was part of the grime collective Boy Better Know, derived sexual pleasure from torturing the women by water-boarding, interrogating, assaulting and raping them, the court heard.
