Three fruit pickers raped a ‘paralytic’ 19-year-old woman on the beach after meeting her in a nightclub, a court heard.

Madalin-Daniel Nitu, 23, Genghiz Iasear, 27, and Ionel-Mizel Ciocan, 25, who are all Romanian farm workers and based in Chicester, are accused of attacking the woman in the early hours of March 9.

The men, who are on trial at Portsmouth Crown Court because they deny charges, claim the sex was consensual.

Rebecca Austin, prosecuting, said the teenager played drinking games including spin the bottle and took cocaine and cannabis before ending up at the Sheiks nightclub in Bognor Regis, West Sussex.

There, she met Ciocan who she kissed and danced with at first.
