Six men have been arrested after a 16-year-old girl was raped at an apart-hotel in Liverpool city centre.
Police said the girl was attacked at around 04:30 BST on Sunday in an apartment in Temple Court.
Two 20-year-old men – one from Congleton and one from Stoke-on-Trent – were arrested on suspicion of rape.
A further four men, three aged 18 and one 19 – all from Stoke-on-Trent, were held on suspicion of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent.
Police said the girl was receiving specialist support and the scene was being forensically examined.
According to the Liverpool Echo, a large number of police vehicles could be seen congregated outside the building, off Victoria Street.
All of the men arrested have now been released pending further inquiries.
A Merseyside police spokesperson said in a written media statement: “All six men (two arrested on suspicion of rape and four arrested on suspicion of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent) have been released under investigation pending further enquiries.”
