A 15-year-old girl was receiving counselling yesterday as police hunted three men who abducted her in broad daylight and raped her repeatedly during a 12-hour ordeal.

Police released details of the attack which happened as the girl was walking along the high street in the Kings Heath area of Birmingham last Friday at 3.30pm.

The schoolgirl, from the West Heath area of the city, was approached by three Asian males in their mid- to late-twenties who began making what police describe as "derogatory remarks" to her.

They said she was then bundled screaming into a four-door car by the men who drove off with her. She was taken to an unidentified building somewhere in the city and raped by all three men. It was not until 3.30am the next morning that her ordeal ended when she was thrown out of the vehicle in the Northfield area of Birmingham where she called police and raised the alarm.

A spokesman for West Midlands Police appealed for shoppers in the area at the time of the abduction to come forward and described the incident as a "horrendous attack on a lone young girl in broad daylight which left her extremely distressed and upset".
