Recorded crime in the Thames Valley rose by 9.7% in the financial year that ended in March - 2% more than in England and Wales overall - according to the Office for National Statistics.

Det Chf Con Jason Hogg said: "We continue to see rises in some crime categories as victims are having more confidence to report previously hidden crime such as domestic abuse, sexual crime as well as stalking and harassment.

"The reasons for crime recording fluctuations are quite complex and are not necessarily just as a result of an actual increase in crime.

"The increase in overall crime numbers in the Thames Valley is linked to changes in our crime recording processes with our officers and staff now recording crimes at point of contact."
