A girl who was sexually exploited over a 10-year period was threatened with death by some of her abusers, a court has been told.

Seven men deny sexually exploiting two girls in Oxford between 1999 and 2009.

They face 41 counts including rape, indecent assault, supplying Class A drugs and making threats to kill.

Both girls were aged between 13 and 15 at the time the alleged abuse started, and were in the care system, Oxford Crown Court heard.
