A shameless British woman spent years claiming she was gang raped and trafficked by “Asian groomers,” going so far as to smash herself in the head with a hammer to sell the ruse, a new documentary reveals.
Eleanor Williams, 23, went to extraordinary lengths to hold up phony claims that she was repeatedly sold for sex from the time she was 12, filing complaints with cops until the scam was finally exposed and landed her in prison, according to a new BBC documentary.
“Liar: The Fake Grooming Scandal” offers never-before-seen footage of Williams’ years-long scam, which shook the UK and put innocent men in danger.
“It’s hard to understand why somebody would go to those lengths and what the motivation would be, other than a desperation to be believed,” Cumbria Detective Constable John Robinson said in the documentary.
Williams, who was sentenced to more than eight years in prison in March after being convicted on nine counts of perverting the course of justice, went viral after posting her claims on Facebook that she was beaten, raped and “groomed” by Asian thugs.
