According to The Sun, shock figures reveal that in one 12-month period alone there were 12,646 sexually motivated assaults. There were also 92,795 attacks and beatings - the equivalent of 254 a day.

Nearly 65,000 were committed against passengers and 28,000 against staff.

In the same period there were 150,000 robberies and thefts and 200,000 acts of vandalism.

The huge crime wave - costing taxpayers 1.5 billion pounds a year - was exposed in a report that Labour ministers ordered but then failed to publish.
