POLICE have revealed the alleged gang rape of a 13-year-old girl was filmed by one of her attackers.

Four boys and one man have been charged with aggravated sexual intercourse in company, after the incident at a property near Byron Bay on March 11.

A Ballina Joint Investigation Response Team spokesman has told the media that one of the boys filmed part of the alleged attack with a video camera.

The content of the film is still being analysed by investigators.

They believe the boy made the film to share with friends and then posted it on the internet.

The identity of the 18-year-old man is being kept secret to avoid revealing the identity of the victim.

The names of the boys also cannot be released because of their ages.
