A woman who glued up her own vagina in an audacious attempt to frame her ex-boyfriend for a crime has been jailed for 10 years.

Vanesa Gesto sensationally accused Ivan Rico of kidnapping her outside her home and abandoning her semi-naked.

She claimed he had squeezed super glue into her intimate areas.

But her story was soon exposed as a sham when investigators uncovered CCTV footage showing Gesto buying the glue and a "kidnap kit" including knives she used to harm herself from a Chinese-run supermarket.

Police also discovered the only vehicle filmed passing the spot where she claimed to have been assaulted and then tortured was a council bin lorry – not the black car she said she had been abducted in.

Rico, 36, spent several days on remand in prison before the shameful attempts by Gesto, dubbed the "Glue Liar" in their native Spain, became apparent.

On Friday it emerged a court in the northern Spanish city of Leon had convicted her of two counts of making up a crime and jailed her for 10 years.

She was also ordered to pay her ex £20,200 in compensation in a written sentence released this week after a trial earlier this year at Leon’s Provincial Court.

State prosecutors had demanded an 11 year, eight month prison sentence.

Gesto’s original lawyer Emilia Esteban cut ties with her former client after it emerged she had tried to frame Ivan over the made-up October 2016 crime, said to have happened in the town of Bembimbre an hour’s drive west of Leon.

Ivan’s brother Rafael, who said from day one his sibling was sleeping when the supposed glue attack and kidnap took place, said: “Our mum spent days crying after he was arrested.”

Lawyer Mrs Esteban said: “I always believed Vanesa and that’s why I defended her. I feel humiliated and deceived.”
