"Violence and sexual offence crimes made up a fifth of crime in the city centre for September."

"There were 1,212 crimes reported in the studied area for the month of September."

"Anti-social behaviour was the only crime that saw more incidents than sexual or violent attacks - with 392 in September, claiming a 32% split of all crime."

"Sexual violence: ISVA Service"

"Victim Support NI has specially trained Independent Sexual Violence Advocates, or ‘ISVAs’ for short, who help victims of sexual violence."

"ISVAs are based in the charity’s Belfast 02890243133 or Foyle 02871370086 hubs."

"ISVAs support all victims of sexual violence, regardless of gender, provided they are over 18 years old. This includes non-recent and current cases."

"The service is available to both those victims going through a criminal investigation or trial and those considering reporting to the police."

As usual the Belfast Telegraph article must have been written by someone from Planet Zog. It states that Victoria Street is a 'stones throw' from Great Victoria Street. Some stone, some arm, some journalism.  :D

Brian Bóruma MacCennètig ( Brian Boru to you  ::) ) was said to have quite the throw on Him,  ;)
Justice for all the innocent/ unarmed People who were
Gunned down by the British Soldiers,

Glad that you were able to take something so positive from the article Billy.

Yes Billy, the two streets must be at least 800 yards apart.

I'm sure that will be a great comfort to any future crime victims.

I can just imagine such a victim being consoled by one of their friends,...

"Ach sure, look on the bright side,... you could have been raped a 10 minute walk away on that other street. !"

'Accurate journalism' is a must, as opposed to 'lazy journalism', which tends to be the case these days. Why can't they report the facts, as opposed to stating fantasy?  :D
