PM tells cabinet he wants to see more rapists prosecuted

Prime Minister Boris Johnson tells his cabinet that he wants to see more rapists "brought to justice" and that it matters "deeply" both to him and every woman in the UK.

He says that the 13,500 new police officers on the street is a "great thing" but says there is "more to do", stressing that a reduction of crime is "absolutely critical" to their policy of levelling up.
