The NSPCC is urging parents across Nottinghamshire to protect their children from sexual abuse after obtaining new figures which reveal a huge increase in the number of reported primary school age victims.

Last year (2012-13) police forces in England and Wales recorded 5547 child sex crimes against those under 11 – a near 20 per cent rise on the previous year’s figure of 4772.

Nottinghamshire Police recorded 185 of these crimes, a figure which increased by 70 per cent from the previous year.
