In July 2017, Chloe Ayling, a 20-year-old model from South London, was drugged and kidnapped in Milan, Italy. She was there for a photo shoot, but ended up abducted, bundled into the boot of a car and driven to a remote farmhouse where she was held captive for six days. She was told she was being auctioned on the Dark Web as a sex slave, and that if she tried to escape, she'd be killed instantly by agents of the Black Death gang. Chloe was eventually set free by twisted fantasist Lukasz Herba, and her story became a tabloid obsession and a national conversation.
On being freed, Chloe's version of events - along with some of the stranger circumstances of her kidnapping - drove the press into a frenzy. What Chloe has gone through is not trial by jury, but trial by media. One year on, her kidnapper, Lukasz Herba, has been found guilty and sentenced to sixteen years and nine months in jail, and Chloe is finally vindicated and able to tell the full story of her terrifying ordeal.
