Confidential files containing graphic descriptions of alleged rapes and victims’ details were found in a bin

Beth Abbit reports:

Rape complainants’ confidential details were exposed by a cache of lawyers’ files dumped in a bin and found by a passer-by.

Graphic accounts of alleged attacks – and the names of alleged victims and the accused – were among a stash of papers left in a dumpster by a canal in Ancoats.

The papers were among 77 files which revealed the personal details of clients of a Manchester law firm accused of serious criminal allegations.
