New anti-rape campaign launched as number of offences increases in summer
A new anti-rape campaign is being launched today in the Warwickshire and West Mercia regions to challenge people's views on what is sexual consent. Police say the StopRapeNow.co.uk campaign is in response to the increase in offences taking place in the summer.
Four officers from the West Mercia Police Force who rescued two people from a burning car have been recognised at last night's Police Bravery Awards.
"The sheer persistence of these officers in such deadly conditions is testimony to their professionalism and dedication to duty. Without their intervention, more lives would undoubtedly have been lost. They all put the safety of others before that of their own. Their actions were truly astounding."
– Paul McKeever, Chairman of the Police Federation
