Is the problem in our institutions or is it culture-wide?
It's been revealed that the UK has the lowest rape conviction rates in Europe. According to a new study ( to be published by London Metropolitan University later this month) out of thirty three countries, Britain came last. So why do our institutions compare so badly with those across the channel in securing convictions for sexual assault? Simon Foy, Commander of Homicide, Rape and Serious Sexual Violence at the Metropolitan Police Authority and Fay Maxted, fromThe Survivor's Trust join Jane to discuss why it's thought the new 'Rape Support Programme' will soon be able to offer us some answers.
