Danielle says that it “stole her innocence” and has ruined “her relationships, self-esteem, everything”.

She recalled a time that a ski-instructor preyed on her in Milan: “That predator took my innocence away and I can never get it back.

“It’s affected the way I’ve been in relationships, my self esteem, everything.”

She explained that the incident occurred during a school trip to Austria.

The instructor apparently followed her to the toilets and dragged her into a cubicle.

It was there that he touched Danielle inappropriately and became violent when she resisted.
