Three men were jailed after holding a girl against her will and selling her for sex.

According to prosecutors in Ireland, Jake Cairns, 21, Jack McInally, 21, and Brandon Sharples, 20, all from Coventry, plied the 14-year-old girl with drugs and forced into to prostitution.

They took sexually explicit photos of the girl and advertised her services on an escort site, claiming she was 18 years old.

The girl was forced to have sex with 20 people over a five day period.

After 5 days, the girl was rescued by police when they found her trying to climb out of a bathroom window, wearing only her underwear, in an attempt to escape.

The three men were found guilty of facilitating the sexual exploitation of a child.

Cairns was found guilty of additional charges for arranging child sexual exploitation and taking and distributing indecent images of a child.

This week, the men were sentenced to jail.

Cairns was sentenced to 8 years in prison while Sharples and McInally will serve five years.
