Manchester police pay £8,000 to woman urged to drop rape claim
The Guardian says Greater Manchester police (GMP) have paid out £8,000 to a woman who reported being drugged and raped, only to be pressed into dropping the case without a proper investigation “because nothing will come of it”.
The 31-year-old woman, who is married with three children, reported the rape on 14 July 2019, a few hours after waking up disoriented at the alleged perpetrator’s house in Wigan, Greater Manchester.
She said she was almost naked and had no memory of much of the previous evening, but suspected she had been raped after experiencing “excruciating” pain going to the toilet.
