THE number of rape and sexual assault claims by female university students has soared to 404 in the last academic year.
The figure was 230 two years ago — and 60 five years ago.
Most reported attacks were allegedly carried out by male students on university grounds, our Freedom of Information inquiries uncovered.
The real figure could be higher as 17 UK universities refused to give details.
