University students reveal true extent of sexual assaults

The true extent of sexual assault suffered by university students has been uncovered by a group of women in Bristol.

Student journalist Hannah Price put a request out for people's experiences after noticing that sexual assault had become the "new normal" and she was inundated with students wanting to share their stories.

Hannah put together a Snapchat video where girls revealed attacks from groping to rape, using the app's filters to disguise their faces.

The women said emojis and filters helped them feel confident enough to speak out about what had happened as Snapchat is an app they are familiar with, part of their everyday life.

The video, published on the student newspaper's website has had an enormous reaction, part of a campaign #RevoltAgainstSexualAssault.

Acknowledging the issue, Director of Student services at the University of Bristol told ITV West Country:
