A British backpacker has spoken for the first time about being kidnapped and raped by a man in Australia.

Elisha Greer, 24, was held captive by Marcus Martin during a 1,000 mile road trip in 2017 – during which she was beaten and had a gun held to her head.

Ms Greer, originally from Liverpool, told Australia’s Channel 7 he “seemed like a nice guy” when they had met at a party in Queensland two months earlier.

Martin, 24, pleaded guilty to rape and deprivation of liberty in October.

He is due to be sentenced on 28 May.
