A woman identified as Vanesa Gesto has been jailed for 10 years for gluing her vagina shut and trying to frame her ex-boyfriend Ivan Rico for the crime.
Vanesa accused former Rico of kidnapping her outside her home and abandoning her semi-naked after squeezing the superglue into her private parts.
Suspicions were raised when investigators found CCTV footage showing Gesto buying the glue and a “kidnap kit”, which included 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.
A court in the northern Spanish city of Leon convicted her of two counts of making up a crime and jailed her for 10 years.
State prosecutors had demanded an 11 year, an eight-month prison sentence.
Gesto who was dubbed the ‘Glue Liar’ was also ordered to pay her ex 25,000 Euros (about £22,250) in compensation. Prior to her lies being discovered, 36-year-old Rico had spent days in prison.
Rico’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.
Gesto’s original lawyer Emilia Esteban cut ties with her former client after it emerged, she had tried to frame Rico over the made-up October 2016 crime.
Lawyer Mrs Esteban said: “I always believed Vanesa and that’s why I defended her. “I feel humiliated and deceived.”
