Big rise in sexual offences in Nottinghamshire

They're up by 35 per cent

Nottinghamshire Police have seen a 35% rise in the number of reported sexual offences over the last two year.

Almost 1 thousand 9 hundred cases were logged in the year to March.

The force argue it's partly because more people are coming forward but say they're also bolstering officer numbers to total of 2 thousand in the near future to meet the challenges.
