Violence against women: Top police role to be announced

BBC News says a top police officer will be put in charge of tackling violence against women and girls in England and Wales, the home secretary will announce.

The creation of the role was recommended in a report after 33-year-old Sarah Everard was murdered in March.

Her death sparked a public debate about women’s safety.

The new national policing lead is part of a broader strategy to deliver “lasting change”, Priti Patel said.

It comes amid concern about record low rape conviction rates and a culture of sexual harassment in schools.
