Four sex abuse cases that were dropped by police or prosecutors are being reviewed by a new panel set up in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal.
As part of a wider overhaul, the Crown Prosecution Service and police chiefs have formed a panel of experts to look at cases where they have previously advised against taking further action.
Police and prosecutors also unveiled new child sexual exploitation and abuse guidelines, which stress victims must be allowed to seek counselling before trial, and make clear that children can be told when they are not alone in making claims against their alleged attacker.
