SICKENING STATS

Experts blame online porn as shocking figures reveal one Scottish child is charged with rape or attempted rape EVERY WEEK

Online porn is being blamed for a record number of sex crimes by under-18s in Scotland.

A total of 407 were reported for rape, attempted rape, sexual assault or other sex crimes in 2015/16. That included 48 under-16s charged with rape or attempted rape, nearly one child a week.  Experts believe the rise of internet porn, which has given some young people a distorted view of sex and relationships, is to blame for the epidemic.

Police Scotland said they are still not in a position to say when Operation Sandwood, which was launched in February 2014, will be concluded and made public. Police are investigating nine allegations of criminality levelled by campaign group Justice for Megrahi at the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service, the police, and forensic officials involved in the investigation and legal processes relating to Megrahi’s conviction.
