Woman jailed for false rape claim

A woman who made a false rape claim after having sex with two teenagers has been jailed for a year.

Victoria Salter, of Lostock Hall, told police in September last year she was raped by three men while one looked on.

This led to the arrest of three 17-year-olds but one of them had filmed the incident which proved the sex was consensual, the court heard.

Salter, 26, who earlier admitted perverting the course of justice was jailed at Preston Crown Court.

Salter, of Broad Meadow, dialled 999 to make the false report in September 2008.

She said she had been followed home by four men and was raped by three of them while the fourth watched.

But the court heard that Salter had been filmed on a mobile phone during the sexual encounter and had been partaking "enthusiastically".
