Just seven per cent of reported crimes led to anybody being charged last year, according to new figures.

And violent crime saw less than seven per cent resulting in a charge or summons to court while sexual offences saw just 3.5 per cent in positive outcomes for victims.

According to the latest data published recently there were 4,336,643 recorded offences up to March 2021 in England and Wales, compared to 5,003,557 the previous year.

Of those just 315,158 led to either a charge or a summons to court.

More than 1.5million of these, the largest proportion, resulted in no suspect ever being identified for the crime.

Crime involving “violence against the person” saw just 6.8 per cent of cases being charged or leading to a summons to court.
