Girl sex-attack victims urged to come forward

YOUNG victims of sexual assaults in the Dispatch district are being urged to come forward.

The appeal comes after the NSPCC reported that thousands of teenager girls attacked by boys suffer in silence.

Adolescents are responsible for a third of all sex offences committed against children and in 75% of these cases the victim will know the offender. Counsellors are available through ChildLine on 0800 1111
