A US woman who says she was brought to Britain aged 17 to have sex with Prince Andrew has implored the British public to “stand beside her” and “not accept what has happened to her”.
Virginia Giuffre, one of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s accusers, says she was trafficked to London by Epstein in 2001.
She describes how Epstein’s girlfriend told her what “to do for Andrew”.
The prince has “categorically” denied any sexual contact with Ms Giuffre.
Virginia Giuffre, formerly Virginia Roberts, has given her first interview for British television as part of a special hour-long Panorama.
Her interview includes her account of how she was introduced to Prince Andrew.
She said that she, the prince, Epstein and his then girlfriend, the socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, took her to Tramp night club in London, where the Prince asked her to dance.
