The victim in the crumbled rape tribulation that led to Alun Cairns’ resignation as Welsh secretary said the case shows why females do not alert police.

Mr Cairns said he did not know about a former aide’s involvement in the collapse of her inquiry until last week.

But he vacated after BBC Wales procured an email sent to him discussing the contingency over a year ago.

A spokesman for Alun Cairns said he and his staff supported the victim in a “kind, attending and considerate way”.

“It is important to reiterate that Mr Cairns had no role or association with the contest ., ” the spokesman added.
