A TEENAGER was raped again by her childhood abuser when she came back to him aged 17, the Old Bailey heard this afternoon.

The unnamed witness known as Girl 4 told the Oxford sex exploitation trial Mohammed Karrar raped her on the same blue sofa where she had been abused from the age of 11.

Now a young woman, she claims brothers Mohammed and Bassam Karrar raped and sold her for sex between the ages of 11 and 15.

She told the court memories of the abuse were brought back when she went back to Mohammed Karrar's flat and saw his blue sofa.

She said she felt "not in control", adding: "I felt my life had come to an end. I managed to feel that low to come back.

"When I walked in there I realised I'd put myself back in the same situation."

The teen argued with Karrar before he raped her, the court heard.

The nine defendants in the dock deny all 51 counts against them.

The trial, now in its seventh week, continues.
