It is revealed some sex offenders in Cornwall have never faced court.

Four have taken a caution for rape in the last five years.


Another 50 got one for sex attacks in the Duchy while more than 200 were released after admitting GBH.

It comes as the government announces a review into the way cautions are used nationally.

Justice Minister Damian Green told Pirate FM the government is launching a national review into cautions: "Many people receive multiple cautions before they eventually get to court whereas I think most of us would regard cautions as maybe a one off, if it's a first offence or a low level offence then that's fine, but not again and again.

"We're issuing new guidelines which come into force next week which make it absolutely clear that cautions are only to be used for relatively low level offences, they should be used for first time offenders and they should be used with appropriate care."
