The Chief Constable of Greater Manchester has questioned how victims of sexual crimes are questioned in court.
He was speaking after the death of a woman in Rochdale, who fell from a roof at a shopping centre in the town on Monday.
It's since emerged a man who had been accused of raping her had been acquitted the previous Friday.
Sir Peter Fahy says he understands giving evidence in court can be traumatic for victims, and questioned how evidence is gathered in these cases.
