A woman has allegedly been drugged and raped by a gang of migrants – sparking violent demonstrations.

The 26-year-old said she woke up in a strange house with cuts and bruises, and believes her drink had been spiked on a night out before she was abducted and sexually assaulted.

Police arrested and bailed six men from Iraq, Syria and Bahrain over the September 4 incident in Sunderland.

Windows were smashed at the terraced house where the woman says she was attacked, and far-Right supporters joined locals for a protest in which two Asian men were injured and five men were arrested for offences including affray.

Police rushed to control the protest, held a week after the alleged attack, which was attended by a larger number of demonstrators than expected.

Sunderland Central MP Julie Elliott last night called for calm.
