Knight, 19, has been jailed. So too have her “boys” brothers Amjad Hussain, 34, of Sharples Street, Accrington, and Shahid Hussain, 37, of Drake Street, Rochdale, and their cousin, Tanveer Butt, 39, of St Albans Street, Rochdale.

At Burnley Crown Court today, Knight, who has been in care since the age of 11, claimed she was shocked when the girls were taken to a house with no electricity in Accrington. She said she had met Amjad Hussain six months earlier when he pulled up beside her in the street and asked for her mobile phone number. They were soon an item.

She says that Amjad Hussain persuaded her to perform sex acts on his brother and cousin.

Amjad Hussain (pictured) said the sex with the two victims was consensual. Butt declared:
