A woman has relived her horrific ordeal after she was abducted at 19 and sold as a sex slave.
Sarah Forsyth, now 42, travelled from Gateshead, Tyneside to Amsterdam after applying for a job as a nursery nurse but was held at gunpoint and kidnapped.
She was forced to sleep with up to 20 men a night in the city's red light district, The Mirror reveals.  
Ms Forsyth claims she has nightmares about her horrific experience - including seeing a young girl from Thailand being killed because she hadn't made enough money for their vicious pimps.

Her death was filmed and Ms Forsyth was forced to watch the shocking footage.
She said: 'I see her often in my dreams – my nightmares. I see again the look of uncomprehending panic in her eyes as the man raises the gun and the sticky, warm bit of flesh and bone explode from her shoulders as the bullet tears into her head.'
Ms Forsyth also recalls seeing the severed head of a pimp lying on the ground after a bitter feud over control of women forced into prostitution.
And other horrific memories included the pimps playing Russian roulette with the girls and laughing at their terrified expressions when the gun would draw a blank after they pulled the trigger.
Ms Forsyth's horrifying ordeal is recounted in her memoir Slave Girl, which is reissued this month.
As a teenager, she had travelled to Amsterdam after responding to an advert for a qualified nursery nurse - which had been placed by notorious British criminal John Reece.
Ms Forsyth said: 'The moment I walked off the plane and into the arrivals hall something didn't feel quite right. The words "Don't do this!" screamed soundlessly inside me.'
Reece met Ms Forsyth at the airport, stole her passport and proceeded to force her to sleep with men in a brothel.
She said: 'After the first time, I started to shake uncontrollably. My whole body shuddered in great heaving waves and I felt as if I was falling off the world and into some dark, endless void.'
Ms Forsyth and other girls held captive were fed on just a handful of M&M's a day. 
Within weeks, Ms Forsyth was sold to a Yugoslavian pimp who kept her in a house with dogs. She was expected to sleep with 18 men a night to earn money.
But she soon developed a crippling addiction to crack cocaine which she used to 'numb the pain' and turned her into a 'helpless slave' to the pimps.
Ms Forsyth said she knew she had to escape when she learned that the death of the Thai girl had been used as the plot in a snuff porn film. 
Snuff - which is reportedly a film which shows the death of a member participating in sex - is often debunked as a myth.
But Ms Forsyth said girls began to disappear from the brothels and she believed they were being intentionally killed for snuff footage.
She said: 'Whenever someone disappeared from the windows, rumours went around about her being used in a snuff film.'
Dutch police tracking the notorious gang approached Ms Forsyth several times before she had the courage to escape her captors in 1997.
Ms Forsyth was taken to a Belgium safe house before being returned home for an emotional reunion with her mother.
She later gave evidence against her captors, where five pleaded guilty to trafficking and abuse in a Dutch court. 
But due to anonymity laws, she never learned their names or how long they were jailed for. 
Ms Forsyth also gave evidence against John Reece who was trialled at Leicester crown court in 1997 and found guilty of two counts of causing prostitution. He got just two years behind bars, according to The Mirror.
Despite battling with a drug addiction for nearly a decade after her ordeal, Ms Forsyth considers herself 'lucky' for managing to escape her captors.
