London: A teenage girl in Britain was raped by 90 different men in one weekend after allegedly being enslaved by a sex ring, a shock new report has claimed.

The 16-year-old is said to be `deeply traumatized` by the experience, despite not coming from an `at risk` background.

According to the Daily Express, she was caught up in the web of horrific abuse after befriending vulnerable girls.

Her claims were revealed in a report by the Centre for Social Justice into modern slavery and sexual exploitation in Britain.

Andrew Wallis, chairman of the group who produced the report, said that the girl `is now safe`.

The CSJ, a think-tank set up by Iain Duncan Smith, the Work and Pensions Secretary, said more than 1,000 victims of trafficking were reported in the UK last year, a `significant number` of whom were children.

Many were forced into prostitution, crime or domestic labour.

The think-tank warned that the figure was `the tip of the iceberg` and condemned Britain`s attitude to the problem as `shameful`.

Half of all sexual exploitation victims found in 2011 were British girls trafficked from city to city within the UK, the report said.

A CSJ spokesman branded the situation `absurd and unacceptable`, and called for slavery and exploitation to be handled by the criminal authorities rather than the Minister for Immigration.

They want a new Modern Slavery Act passed by Parliament to bring all exploitation crimes together, it added.
