AN 11-year-old boy yesterday told how he and other frightened children were taken to an isolated barn to be sexually abused by a paedophile gang.

He named three adults who took part, including his father. The boy, who cannot be named, said a penknife had been held to his throat with the threat 'if you tell anyone, this is what I will be doing to you'.

He told Swansea Crown Court that children 'tons of us' were regularly tied up after being taken by tractor and trailer to the barn in Pembrokeshire, west Wales.

Eleven men and a woman deny conspiring to commit serious sexual assaults, indecent assaults and acts of gross indecency against children.

The trial continues.
