Vice Squad cops were said to have nabbed three women and a man from Manchester after they tried to sell six girls aged between 14 and 23 at a five-star hotel in West London.
The gang was secretly filmed while making the offer during which they allegedly boasted about peddling even younger, prepubescent girls. "This is about as sick as it gets. These are among the youngest girls we've found being offered for sex," the Sun quoted a senior insider as saying.
"This gang was extremely greedy — it was all about the money. Sex with a virgin aged 12 or under cost anything up to £50,000," the insider added.
