She said: 'I left home at around 4.30pm to catch the train to London, where I was having a night out.
'Amey had asked me if she could host a party for her friend's birthday and I said “Absolutely no way – never in a million years.”

'I bought her some pizzas and chips and gave her some extra bedding for them to sleep in. I thought at 16 she could be trusted.
'In the end around 60 people turned up. It got wildly out of control and descended into chaos.'
She added: 'When I collected Amey from the police station, officers told me the place had been trashed.
'However, nothing could prepare me for the horrific scene I saw when I returned home. I was shaking and left feeling sick and panicky.
'The yobs had gone from room to room destroying everything along the way.

'They showed no respect as they carried out their deliberate acts of vandalism – even going through my wardrobe, pulling out clothes and covering them in beauty products.
'I hold every single one of them responsible because nobody phoned the police or tried to stop them.'
Ms Mabbott said things are now strained between her and her daughter and while she is living with her parents, Amey is staying with friends.
She said: 'It's fair to say things between me and Amey are strained at the moment and we are living apart.
'Everything is still extremely raw and I don't know if I will ever be able to trust her again. Police said the place stank of cannabis when they arrived.
'They found a bong and evidence of the drug ketamine, which people had been snorting off surfaces.'
Vicky O'Hare, from Hampshire Constabulary, said police are treating the incident as criminal damage.
She added: 'The investigation is ongoing.'
