The girl fell pregnant at 14 during her 18-month ordeal in Lancashire
Six men deny a catalogue of sexual offences against her
A teenage girl was allegedly groomed from the age of 12 and and taken to a drug den before being ‘passed around for sex’ by a gang of men.
The girl fell pregnant at 14 during an 18-month ordeal which saw her raped and sexually assaulted by the men at a house in the Brierfield area of Burnley in Lancashire.
Six men from the area have appeared before Manchester Crown Court to face a range of sexual offences against the girl.

Prosecutor Alaric Bassano told the court: ‘The girl was groomed over a period of time and on many occasions was taken to a house near Brierfield, Burnley.
‘That house was used as a den at which young men invited or brought young girls and women to drink alcohol, take drugs and engage in sex.
‘It was to this house that this girl was taken and at this house that she was sexually assaulted and raped by several adult males.
‘She was passed between the men to be used for their own sexual gratification. She was treated with indignity and contempt by them.’
Mohammed Imran Amjad, 26, known as Immy , denies rape, child abduction and intimidating a witness.
Shiraz Afzal,26, known as Frankie, denies aiding and abetting rape. Omar Mazafar ,22, known as Bats, denies inciting rape. Mohammed Suleman Farooq, 23, known as Sully, denies sexual assault, engaging in sexual activity with a child, and witness intimidation.
Mohammed Zeeshan Amjad,25, known as Zishan, denies rape and engaging in sexual activity with a child and Haroon Mahmood, 22, denies rape and engaging in sexual activity with a child.
Mr Bassano told the court that the victim became ‘aggressive and disobedient’ at the age of 12 and began spending a considerable amount of time with Immy Amjad.
But when her worried mother confronted Immy, told him her child’s age and accused him of an inappropriate relationship, he shrugged his shoulders and walked away.
Mr Bassano said: ‘The girl made no complaint and continued to fraternise with Immy. Immy himself was undeterred by the challenge and went on to commit numerous offences.’
