A young woman who fell victim to a paedophile posing as Justin Bieber online has spoken out about her traumatic experience. 

Yohann Ramchelawon was jailed on Monday at Stafford Crown Court for 15 years after he admitted a series of sexual offences involving teenage girls. 

The 30-year-old created a fake social media profile, using a photograph of a teenage boy with a resemblance to the Canadian singer, to snare girls as young as 12.

He lured the girls and requested they share indecent images of themselves with him. Some of the victims were coerced into performing sex acts over webcam after he threatened to share the images with their friends and family.

Police eventually traced him to a location in Huddersfield, where he was arrested. 

West Midlands Police released audio of one of his victims telling of her experience on Soundcloud, with the voices disguised to protect the girl's identity.
