The number of primary school children sexually abused in Wales rose by nearly a quarter last year, the NSPCC said.

The charity said 376 cases were recorded by police in 2012-13, an increase of 75 (nearly 25%) on the previous year, compared to a 16% rise across Wales and England.

The figures were described as “disturbing” particularly because victims were often so young.
