Nine schoolboy rapists are facing years behind bars after meting out a shocking punishment attack on a 14-year-old girl.

The boys, who cannot be named, of Hackney, were aged as young as 13 when they took it in turns to gang rape their defenceless victim.

She was first snatched from the street, before being marched to a nearby flat in King Edward's Road, South Hackney.

A 16-year-old thug ordered she should be put through the sexual ordeal as punishment for allegedly insulting the leader's girlfriend, Snaresbrook Crown Court heard.

The terrified victim was then led to another address on the Frampton Park Estate, where all six forced themselves on her.

Following a six-week trial six of the youngsters were found guilty of every charge they faced - including kidnap, false imprisonment and 13 rapes.

Three other teenagers pleaded guilty to their roles before the trial.
