A new study on the policing of rape in Scotland has revealed a number of key factors which lead to cases being dropped before they come to court.
The study, by Glasgow Caledonian University PhD student Georgia Scott-Brien, suggests that 50% of cases do not progress beyond the policing stage in Scotland.
Ms Scott-Brien presented her findings at a one-day conference in Glasgow on Wednesday.
After speaking at the event, entitled ‘Perspectives on Rape and the Policing Process’, Ms Scott-Brien spoke to Scotland Tonight’s Rona Dougall.
Scotland Tonight is Scotland's nightly current affairs programme and is presented by John MacKay and Rona Dougall.
