The BBC have reported on some very disturbing figures.
A Freedom of Information request by the NSPCC has shown that reports to Police Scotland of sexual offences against children rose to nearly 2,500 last year.
That equates to SEVEN sex offences against children a day.
This is devastating news and makes horrifying and sickening reading.
Proof again, if ever it were needed, that we must overhaul our child protection system NOW.
