Three men who were caught on camera leading a vulnerable teenager away from a nightclub before gang raping her have been jailed.

Salih Altun, 25, and Sali Amet, 23, and Omer Engin, 24, preyed upon the university student in a sickening ordeal in a city centre.

The teenage victim had enjoyed a night out with friends. She was dumped on a street after the rape.

"They separated her from her friend during the early hours of the morning with a plan to fulfil their own depraved sexual desires.

"Thanks to the cooperation of the nightclub and other local businesses, we were able to obtain excellent footage, which showed the men on the lead up to the attack. This material has been vital to this investigation and instrumental in their conviction.

"I would also like to thank the victim for her bravery, who has suffered a great deal following this ordeal. It has had a profound effect on her and her family. The support she has given us has helped bring these offenders to justice and I'm pleased to see they'll serve lengthy sentences as a result of what they did."

Altun, from Faversham, Kent, admitted two charges of rape. Amet, of Faversham, and Engin from Sturry near Canterbury, Kent, each admitted one charge of rape.
