Police are to use licensing laws to shut down pubs and clubs where repeated sexual assault allegations have been made as part of a new strategy to help prevent rape in London.

The Met has faced criticism over recent high profile failings to investigate rape cases properly and one charity says that is what the Met should be addressing.

BBC London's Nick Beake talks to Det Ch Supt Mick Duthie of the Met's Sapphire Unit, Lisa Longstaff from Women Against Rape and Fiona Elvines from Rape Crisis.
