Rise in child sex offences recorded by Lincolnshire and Humberside police

Both have increased by more than the national average

There's been a major rise in the number of child sex offences recorded by Lincolnshire and Humberside police, higher than the national average.

Across the country such offences were up by 19 per cent but Lincolnshire police saw a 23 per cent rise and 25 per cent in Humberside.

It's thought it may be down to more people coming forward including some to report historical offences.
