Grooming victim recalls her ordeal

One of the five victims of a Greater Manchester grooming ring has told the BBC she was sometimes forced to have sex with up to five different men in a day.

She told the BBC that when the grooming started, the men "made me feel like I was pretty. I never thought they would do... what they did to me."

The 19-year-old woman, who was 15 when the abuse began, said: "What they did to me was evil. They ripped away all my dignity."

Nine men, from Rochdale and Oldham, have been convicted of being part of the child sexual exploitation ring.
