1) Wood Green Crown Court, North London
A teenager with learning difficulties was gang raped by up to ten youths who then showered her 'head to toe' with burning caustic soda, a court heard
The attackers left the girl 'naked, screaming, crying and in a desperate state' as they ran away laughing, it was alleged.
They had picked on the shy 16-year-old because they claimed she was a 'dirty ho who was asking for it', Wood Green Crown Court in North London heard.
The girl was left traumatised and severely disfigured by the attack.

Three of the gang, two armed with large machetes and a third with a wooden baton, caught up with the victim and rained down blows during the broad daylight attack at 5pm on Saturday.
Eyewitnesses saw the boy being chased from Woodwell Road by a gang of at least 10 youths in their late teens, who hit him indiscriminately as he pleaded for mercy.
It was only when shopworkers, neighbours and passers-by closed in on the gang that they fled towards the nearby park.
Interpreter Iftikhar Ahmed, who was cleaning his car when the attack unfolded, said: “The boy was only small and ran up to an old man in the street screaming ‘help me, help me please’.

The ethnicity of the victims in both stories is not clear, they could come from various communities. In both cases the media does not tell us the ethnicity of the perpetrators either, however, from the nature of the alleged crimes I think it can be safely assumed that they are not from the indigenous community.
Just two news stories from many similar ones on another average day in multi cultural Britain.
