Sex offences are up 37.7 per cent more across Essex then last year Essex Police confirm.

It amounts to 302 more offences between April 1, 2013, and December 31, 2013, compared to the previous year.

Essex Police has solved 0.5 per cent fewer incidents in the same period – 17.48 per cent.

A police spokesman said: “Serious sexual offences have always been some of the most complex crimes to investigate and the effect of the Jimmy Savile case, and similar high-profile reports, has led to a significant increase in people reporting offences which happened many weeks, if not years, ago.
