More female child abusers in North Yorkshire

5:48am 9th November 2009

Nearly 600 children contacted ChildLine's Yorkshire and North East base last year, with sexual abuse as their main concern.

Of those, 105 had been assaulted by a female.

The findings show that more kids are now reporting abuse from a woman, usually their mother.

Nationally, the proportion of youngsters calling ChildLine about a female offender, has risen from 11% in 2005 to 17% in 2009.
