Police: Vulnerable 12-year-old girl 'brutally raped'

This was a very nasty attack on a vulnerable girl just 12-years-old by a group of older males who engaged her in conversation before leading her to a secluded area.

She was pinned down and two of the males then brutally raped her.

I would appeal for anyone with information or any witnesses to please contact police as soon as possible.

– Detective Inspector Simon Ellershaw
