Pirate FM has learnt that three quarters of young rape victims in Cornwall and Devon know their attackers.

Devon and Cornwall Police are launching a campaign which will target under-21 year olds.

Posters are going out warning sex without consent is rape.

Detective Inspector Andrea Kingdon is hoping an advert in cinemas will hit home too: "Letting young people know that it's OK to say no to sex and that's the case if they've been dating somebody, had a drink or if they've even had sex before. If someone's under the strong influence or drugs, they're not actually capable of giving free consent.

"It shows a young man watching himself at a party through a window while he rapes a young girl and asks the question; If you could see yourself, would you see rape? It's both looking at the victim and the perpetrator of the offence to ask them to stop and look at what they're doing and their actions."
