A former children's care home resident has received a £50,000 payout from Birmingham City Council after she claimed it failed to protect her from grooming gangs.
She lived at the home while a teenager and claims she and other girls were targeted by paedophiles who contacted them on its public phone and sent on to abuse them.
She said some of the abuse was reported to staff, social workers and police but cannot recall anyone being prosecuted for any offences, including an allegation of rape.
The city council has agreed to make the payment but denies liability.
A solicitor who acted for the former resident said: 'No amount of damages can make up for the experiences that she had, or turn the clock back.
'The settlement funds are there to assist her in moving forward, to obtain therapy and support and to represent the problems she has suffered as she grew up, and their consequences which will be with her for the rest of her life.'
