Across the whole Transport for London network, including buses and overground trains, there were more than 2,300 sexual assaults last year, an average of six every day.

The message from both police and Transport for London is that with more suspects being caught, the more victims come forward.

That's why they applaud the increasing number of people reporting their experiences.
