The amount of crimes committed against students in Nottingham is falling, Freedom of Information figures from the police show.

According to the figures, released on the Notts Police website after a Freedom of Information Request from a member of the public, there were 1,025 violent crimes against students in 2012 compared with 2,482 in 2007.
