A CRACKDOWN has been called for on online dating sites after rape and sex assault offences in Derbyshire doubled.

This is something that I'm keen to address."Derbyshire's figures reflect the picture presented by the National Crime Agency's Serious Crime Analysis Section (SCAS) which identified an increase in reports of serious sexual assaults carried out by strangers initiating online contact as the popularity of internet dating has increased.
Derbyshire's figures show the majority of all rape victims are aged between 11 and 26 highlighting the importance of education in communicating the risks and wider issues of consent.
Currently, 16% of rape allegations in the county have a 'positive justice outcome', while the 'positive outcome' rate for sexual offences excluding rape stands at 25%.
Both figures are slightly lower than they were in 2013/14 however it appears there are more offences where the victim has withdrawn support for police action in 2015/16.
