A SCHOOLGIRL woke up with a love bite on her neck after "passing out" from drink and drugs given to her by a sex exploitation gang, the Old Bailey heard this afternoon.
The unnamed witness, known as Girl 5, claims she had sex with four of the nine defendants on trial between the ages of 12 and 14.
Today she told the jury she had sex with Zeeshan and Bilal Ahmed because she was frightened of them.
She said: "They were intimidating.
"They controlled me because I was scared of them."
Now 16, she said Zeeshan was "horrible" and used to call her names.
She said the sex made her feel "disgusting" and she used to self harm.
The teenager, who has lived in care and foster homes, said Zeeshan Ahmed, now 27, once invited her to his Hurst Street room.
But when she arrived two other men were also there, the court heard.
Girl 5 said she "passed out" from drinking too much and woke up with a love bite. She said she did not know if anything else had happened to her.
All nine defendants deny all 51 counts against them. The trial continues.
