A young woman who was sexually abused and raped by her own brother from the age of three years old has spoken out about her hellish childhood for the the first time.
Olivia Hutchinson* was sexually abused by her brother, Brandon Hutchinson, now 25, from the age of three.
Olivia, from Fleetwood, Lancashire, said: 'I remember being abused by Brandon from the age of three and as he got older it then progressed into rape.
'I was forced to live with the horrendous memories until 2014 when I finally had the courage to tell my mum.

Brandon Hutchinson, now 25, is serving a nine-year term for child rape. His sister has spoken out for the first time to encourage other victims not to suffer in silence
"No one knew what a complete monster he was, he'd taken my virginity and I was tired of having to live a lie.'
Olivia's mother Janet said she 'felt sick' to learn her 'seemingly perfect son was actually a rapist', when Olivia first told her at the age of 18.
But Janet instantly supported her daughter and the pair told the police. The family are sharing their story to help others find the confidence to speak up and get justice.
Brandon Hutchinson is now behind bars and has served over four years of his nine year sentence after being found guilty in January 2015.
Olivia added: 'Thankfully my mum was really supportive and believed me straight away.
'We went through a horrific ordeal following it though as our family was divided by opinion and my mum had no choice but to tell the police so we could get justice for Brandon's crimes.
'I was so relieved when he was sentenced to nine years, I finally felt like I could put my past behind me.'
Janet, 43, and Olivia, 22, have spoken out. Their family ordeal caused the pair to comfort eat, reaching 50 stone between them but they have since lost 20 stone

Olivia added: 'I'll never forget what happened to me, he abused his position as my older brother.
'His abuse only stopped when I was 12 as I was old enough to understand it was wrong and felt confident enough to say no.
'My childhood was ruined by my brother but I won't let him ruin my future.
