'Forced to have illegal abortion' after repeated abuse

The Old Bailey has been told that a 12-year old girl, who was repeatedly raped by a group of men, was forced to have an abortion after becoming pregnant.

The girl, is one of six alleged victims of nine men accused of grooming young people and exploiting them for sex in Oxford.

The men, who are said to be of Pakistani and North African origin, all deny the charges.

Reeta Chakrabarti explains some of the harrowing evidence presented to the jury.
