A British sex slave has told the horrific story of how she was abducted at 15 by a Muslim taxi driver as a vulnerable teen and endured 13 years of horrendous abuse.
Anna Ruston claims that her captor raped her repeatedly, prostituted her out to other men, and took away the four babies she had during the terrible ordeal.
During the 13 years of abuse, she lived with the taxi driver and his mother, his brothers and their wives, but none did anything to help her.

The wives, who she claims were also being abused, would cover up the bruises around her eyes with make-up and occasionally give her painkillers.
Her story has chilling echoes of the case of the shocking case of Elisabeth Fritzl, who was held captive in an underground bunker for 28 years by her father Josef.
She had seven children while raised in the dungeon in Austria in a case that sent shockwaves around the world, after Anna suffered here in Britain.
‘I can still see that bedroom, the corner where I would rock in pain. Although after a while I stopped feeling pain, I think my body shut down,’ she told The Mirror.
Worryingly, Miss Ruston, whose name has been altered for her safety, says it ‘could be happening on any street’ in the UK.’
As a vulnerable teen, living with a friend after her grandmother died and her parents would not support her, Malik knew no-one would miss her, she claims.

In her new book Secret Slave, which she was advised to write for her own therapy, she explains how, with no close family, she latched on to the his affection.
And after visiting his home, he suddenly turned on her with sickening ferocity, raping her and beginning the 13 years of captivity.
She also explains how she felt ‘let down’ by the authorities, who she claims were afraid to help her for fear of being accused of discrimination.
The claim has concerning echoes of the Rochdale grooming scandal, in which authorities repeatedly failed to address warning signs about Asian sex gangs due to similar concerns.
Anna said: ‘Malik dressed me in his culture’s clothes, dyed my hair black, made me wear a scarf and keep my head down. When he spoke for me they thought it was a cultural thing. And I think people are scared to be accused of discrimination.’
