Figures collected by the BBC’s Panorama show a large increase in the number of reported sexual offences by under-18s on other under-18s in England and Wales. They rose by 71% from 4,603 in 2013-14 to 7, 866 in 2016-17. The figures came from a Freedom of Information request, to which 38 out of 43 forces responded. Incidents reported within schools also increased. “We are dealing unequivocally with the tip of the iceberg,” said Simon Bailey, the National Police Chief lead for child protection.
