Eleven Arrested Over Liverpool Rape

Eleven people have been arrested on suspicion of raping a woman in Liverpool.

The woman, 43, was assaulted at her home in the Anfield area on 24th September.

The people arrested include a 12-year-old boy, three 13-year-old boys and a 15-year-old girl.

Detective Superintendent Tim Keelan said: "This was an appalling attack on a woman in her own home and we would urge anyone who has information, which could help us bring those responsible to justice, to come forward.

"It is possible that some of those who were in the flat on the day may have talked to people, including friends or family, about what happened and if they have we would urge them to contact us."
