Mehmet Citak, then aged 34, and Ahmet Kurtyemez, then aged 29, were sentenced to 20 years and 12 years imprisonment respectively for offences committed between 2010 and 2014.
Citak and Kurtyemez were using their workplace, a barber's, as a base to have sex with underage girls and the offering of services such as piercing and tattoos attracted children to the shop.
The two girls, known as C and Q, gave birth to children fathered by Citak and believed they were in long-term relationships with him but instead were 'subjected to physical, sexual and emotional abuse as part of a controlling relationship'.
The Somerset Safeguarding Children Board report found that 14 opportunities were missed by Avon and Somerset Police, the Clinical Commissioning Group, Yeovil District Hospital, Somerset Partnership Trust (CAMHS), and Somerset County Council.
The report highlights a number of failings in the care of the two girls involved in the case: 'What is surprising though is that even when the age difference of the sexual partner was known by police and social care to be 10+ years, no action was taken purely on this basis.
Julian Wooster, the Director of Children's Services for Somerset County Council apologised for the shocking failings.Mr Wooster says a number of people who failed the system no longer work for the council.
