A woman at the centre of a sex abuse ring in Norwich showed no pity for or interest in her victims, police have said.

Marie Black, 24, will today be sentenced after being found guilty of 23 offences including rape and conspiracy to rape.

She was one of four people convicted for their part in a paedophile ring in Norfolk.

Today, Norfolk Police said Black had been the "common denominator" in the abuse of two boys and three girls in and around Norwich and London.

In each case, she introduced the children to their abusers.

Det Ch Insp Hornby added that, five years after the police investigation had begun, the children were "in a safe place now and are living the kind of normal life they deserve".
