Scotland Yard Campaign To Cut Sex Assaults

Scotland Yard is stepping up its campaign to cut the number of rapes and sexual assaults in London.

Licensing laws are being used to close pubs and clubs where high levels of attacks take place.

It is to try to reverse the decline in the number of people reporting rape.

The new head of the Met Police Sapphire sex crime unit also says it is unacceptable that rape victims are waiting an average of thirteen hours to be interviewed and medically examined.

Mick Duthie has told The Guardian he will be restructuring the unit to address failings that have caused many victims to lose faith in the police.
