Police are hunting two teenagers after a 12-year-old girl was raped in East London. She was attacked in Hibbert Road in Walthamstow.

It happened just after midnight on Saturday when she met three men. The trio are aged between 17 and 19.

The first was mixed race, with a diamond stud in his left ear and a London accent. He told the girl his name was Mo and that he was 17.

He had short hair, was very skinny and wore a black puffa-style jacket with a hood, black chinos, black trainers and a grey/black T-shirt.

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