Lincoln woman raped and sold by grandad speaks out

A woman from Lincoln who was repeatedly raped by her grandad for seven years and sold to hundreds of paedophiles has spoken out for the first time.

Karl Barker started to groom Emma Louise when she was just 11-years-old by buying her cigarettes and getting her to drink alcohol.

He later moved onto sexual assault and raped her on “many occasions” before taking her to dogging sites and selling her to around 200 paedophiles for sex.

The ordeal has been revealed in detail for the first time in a new book called “Grandad’s Girl” where Emma tells her true story of survival.

Ahead of the book’s release, the abuse survivor told The Sun about the attacks, revealing she was gradually groomed with alcohol and cigarettes before her grandad convinced her to sleep in his bed.

He then forced her to perform oral sex on him and raped her.

She went on to tell The Sun how he had driven her to a lay-by off the Lincoln bypass so that a man could pay to have sex with her.

After admitting attacking his granddaughter and selling her to other paedophiles, Barker was sentenced to 22 years in prison.

His victim, named as Emma Louise, has dedicated her life to helping other survivors of abuse and trauma.

She has worked with the police and Spring Lodge, a support and recovery service, to raise awareness of child sex abuse.

Emma now plans to go to university to do a degree in psychology and become a psychologist.

Her book has now been released at all major retailers for £6.99.
