Rise in child violence21st April 2010
A Cardiff University study has revealed that serious violence is continuing to fall in England and Wales.
It says 350,000 people were treated for injuries in 2009, 1,500 fewer than in the previous year. But the research also found that 2,800 children were treated for serious violence, which is up 8% on 2008. The figures were compiled from 44 hospitals by a specialist team at the university which annually tracks the number of people treated in casualty departments after being attacked.
