More than 300 rapes were reported in British schools in three years, including a 12-year-old girl who was ‘stripped naked and raped by fellow pupils’.

Police recorded a 40 per cent increase in the number of sex crimes reported to them between 2011 and 2013 – and more than half of the offenders were children.

Easy access to online pornography is said to have driven the surge in abuse, according to the children’s charity NSPCC.
