A teenage schoolgirl was allegedly 'gang raped' by six youths on a playing field after the college end-of-year party at a village recreation ground in a UK town.

The heinous crime was allegedly committed behind Swavesey Village College at Swavesy in Cambridgeshire. "Six men have been arrested and bailed in connection with the incident," a spokeswoman for Cambridgeshire Police said.

The assault happened just hours after the teenager left the school prom. According to a report in The Mailonline today, it was believed the girl was seriously sexually assaulted multiple times over several hours between 1am and 4am on the morning of June 28.

Three 17-year-olds and three 18-year-olds have been arrested and questioned by Cambridgeshire Police following the incident.

A spokesman for the Savesey college today said, "The school is aware of a police investigation that we are supporting fully. It would be inappropriate to comment further while that investigation is ongoing."

The police spokeswoman confirmed the arrests. And said, "officers are investigating a serious sexual assault which took place at Swavesey recreation ground on Sunday, June 28."

The three youths and three men have since been released on police bail and are due to return to Parkside police station, in Cambridge, on September 1.
