Avon and Somerset PCC says 'rape myths still exist'

Avon and Somerset's police and crime commissioner Sue Mountstevens has said rape myths still exist.

The PCC has used her budget to spend more on rape support charities - which was part of her election pledge to tackle violence against women and children.

Avon and Somerset police claim it has helped push up the number of reported rapes in the force area by 11% over the past year.
