|Esther Baker waived her right to anonymity|
Ms Baker, who has waived her right to anonymity, said police officers would keep watch as she was sexually abused, occasionally joining in.

Staffordshire Police have now launched an investigation into the child abuse ring following Ms Baker's claims.
Speaking to Sky News, Ms Baker, who says she was abused from the age of six, claims the politician is from the current era.
She said uniformed officers would stand guard in woodland on Cannock Chase, Staffordshire, while she and other children were sexually assaulted.
'I got the feeling very much that they were protecting somebody, that they were with one of the men,' she said.
They certainly weren't there protecting the one who needed it most. What a disgrace!
'One of them (the police officers) I knew from church. There were a few occasions where they would be in uniform, and I kind of knew, I learnt that when they were in uniform that it was going to be a rough night. On occasion they would ... they would sort of join in.
Ms Baker said that on one occasion she tried to run away, but was stopped by a police officer who told her he was 'sorry'. The time has come for that officer to come forward, she added.
Hopefully, that police officer will 'do the right thing' and come forward.
She explained that she was a 'favourite' of the politician, who she says is from the recent era but is not from Staffordshire, but she only recently realised who he was.
The politician liked it when she played the piano, Ms Baker recalled, getting her to sit on his lap while she did so.
She said: 'He was part of it for four years. One of the core members. He was there quite often - I was one of his favourites.
'I would know that face anywhere. I have lived with it and others in my head for over 20 years, I know every inch of him,' Ms Baker added.
She says she and the other children, of varying ages, were given alcohol and were often filmed.
She believes a Lord and a judge may have been among her abusers, who she says also assaulted her inside buildings around Staffordshire.
Ms Baker has given a graphic account of her abuse to detectives and is now appealing to other victims to come forward.
She added: 'I always swore I would never go near the police again - never ... but I have hid it for 20 years, that has not worked, that hasn't taken the fear away - I have got nothing to lose any more.'
Staffordshire Police were unable to say whether the politician is still alive, or whether he is still in public office.
I think "unable" is undoubtedly the wrong word here. "Unwilling" is the correct word.

He said: 'Staffordshire Police is in the early stages of investigating a number of very serious allegations from the 1980s and 90s. Specially trained officers are carrying out a number of interviews with the victim to build up an understanding of what took place, and her recollections of all those involved.
'We are determined to thoroughly gather any evidence which will allow us to bring those who may have been involved to justice, while taking a sensitive approach to supporting the victim throughout.
'We will continue to interview her over the coming days, recognising the horrific nature of what we are investigating. To be clear, regardless of role, anyone who has been involved in criminal offences will be investigated to provide justice for the victim.
'Child abuse is a terrible crime, whenever it occurs. We are keen to hear from anyone who knows more about the allegations, or any other victim of child sexual abuse.
'In this specific case the victim has made the decision to waive her right to anonymity. Staffordshire Police wants to reassure anyone who has been a victim of any form of child or sexual abuse that their anonymity will be protected.'
Unfortunately, none of the reports on this horror story indicate how Esther wound up in the hands of these perverts over and over. Was she in a care home? Regardless of that, she should be applauded for her courage and humility. Hopefully some of her co-victims will come forward to corroborate her story.
