STUDY INTO SEXUAL ABUSE PRPOSED BY GOVERNMENT

There’s been a broad welcome to the news that a second Sexual Abuse and Violence study will be proposed by the Justice Minister.

Advocacy groups say there’ve been huge changes since, with online grooming, internet abuse and an explosion in pornography.
