A teenage girl has told a court how she woke up from a drunken stupor to find she was being raped.

Liverpool crown court was played a police interview video of the girl who said she was assaulted by a member of a gang in a house in Greater Manchester.

The girl, 17, who was 15 at the time of the allegations, said she screamed when she woke up.

Her testimony was given in the trial of 11 Rochdale men who are being tried for rape. They deny all charges.

The girl said that she and a friend had earlier been picked up by three men who took them to a house and plied them with vodka and whiskey until they passed out in a bedroom. When she came to she was being raped, she said.

On another occasion she said she was threatened by one of the defendants with a razor at a house in Rochdale and then raped.

She called the man Shah and said he twice grabbed her neck and slapped her face when she tried to avoid kissing him.

In a separate incident she watched a man named Hamid slit his own wrists before threatening to slit her throat if she did not have sex with him, the court heard.

She said: "Something was mentioned about sex. He asked me if I wanted to and I said no and he said: 'I will cut you.'

"I said 'cut yourself' and he came up to me with the razor blade, put his face next to mine and he had the razor blade still in his hand and then he had sex with me."

She told police: "I would rather that happened than have my throat slit."

Kabeer Hassan, 24; Abdul Aziz, 41; Abdul Rauf, 43; Mohammed Sajid, 35; Adil Khan, 42; Abdul Qayyum, 43; Mohammed Amin, 44; Qamar Shahzad, 29; Liaquat Shah, 41 and Hamid Safi, 22, all deny conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with children under the age of 16.

An unnamed 59-year-old man denies the same charges as well as two counts of rape, aiding and abetting a rape, sexual assault and an allegation of trafficking within the UK for sexual exploitation.

Another witness, now 19, said: "You want to get these [the defendants] to swear on the Koran. I have just sworn on the Bible. What I am saying is true. See if they can swear on the Koran and say what they are saying now."

Her father admitted on the witness stand that he joined the far-right British National Party after his daughter revealed her ordeal.

When asked if he would be bothered if his daughter was mixing with Asian men, he replied: "No, why should it?"
