According to reports, police chiefs are so concerned that they have already asked officers to visit known offenders in the run-up.

"I hope this campaign will help to reassure victims that there is protection available and encourage more victims to report abuse," The Daily Star quoted Theresa May, Home Secretary, as saying.
