Police launch anti-rape and sexual assault campaign in East Lancashire

AN ANTI rape and sexual assault campaign is being launched in East Lancashire.

The Police’s No Consent, No Sex, No Excuses is running over the festive period and is being led by the dedicated serious sexual offences team.

They offered advice to revellers to help them stay safe:  

  • Make sure you stay with friends
  • Make sure you have enough money to get home safely
  • Ensure any taxi you use is a licensed hire car.

Sgt Leah Rice, from the public protection unit, said: “People need to understand that if a woman or man says no, or if they are incapable of consenting, through drink or drugs, then a criminal offence is being committed.”
