Voyeurs and flashers were reported to Greater Manchester Police hundreds of times in the first year of the pandemic.

However, figures suggest that justice will not be served in many cases.

Campaigners are calling for a "radical overhaul" of the response to low-level sex crimes, saying the justice system has failed victims.

New Home Office data shows GMP received 568 reports of cases in the year up to March 2021, an increase of 55 from the year before.

England and Wales forces recorded 10,200 such crimes in 2021, 40% of which were dropped due to lack of evidence, with one in six closed before a suspect was identified.

Campaign group, End Violence Against Women and Girls deputy director Deniz Ugur said: "It's abundantly clear the current system is failing women and girls when incidents like street harassment, groping and flashing are almost universally experienced by women and girls across their lifetimes, and then are so often trivialised or dismissed if reported."

She said a radical overhaul of the policing and criminal justice system's response to violence against women was needed.
