Detectives are looking for three teenagers after a 12-year-old girl was raped near garages in east London.

She was pinned down and attacked by two men aged between 17 and 19 whom she had just met, said police.

A third teenager went with them to the "secluded" area of Hibbert Road, near Theydon Street, Walthamstow.

The attack, which police described as "brutal", took place between 00:15 BST and 00:30 BST on Saturday.

Officers said the first suspect claimed he was 17 and called Mo. He was very thin, mixed race and had a diamond stud in his left ear.

The second was described as black and very tall. His hair was partly shaven and he was wearing black trousers and a red and blue shirt.

The third, who did not commit rape, said his name was Miles, police said.

Det Insp Simon Ellershaw said the girl had been "engaged in conversation" before being led to a "secluded area".
