The Government says it won't change the law to give people accused of rape the right to anonymity.
There have been calls for a change in the law after Coronation Street star Michael Le Vell was cleared of child sex charges yesterday.
Friends said the high-profile trial concluded "two years of hell" for the actor.
Simon Bass from the Churches Child Protection Advisory Service had told Premier's News Hour why he's supporting the government:
A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference
In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
