    I just watched the Hunting ground documentary, and now I'm incredibly concerned, and scared. I'm scared to go to another city.Most of the cases are so........unassuming. They're mistakes any of us could make......If anyone has any stories to share, or any experiences, information please do tell. You can go anon, it's fine.

    Hey this scared me when moving to uni. I'm currently in Loughborough and honestly nothing happens here, it's possibly the safest place. I've never seen or heard of any problems and I go out a lot and quite often walk on campus late hours and it's perfectly safe. I'm also originally from Nottingham which has a bad reputation for uni rape attacks etc but whenever I've been out there I've also never had any problems. It's honestly something not to worry about, well I can speak for the Midlands!!

    That's a relief. What scares me is that some of the rapists are guy/girl friends you have, and then they just spike your drinks when they're with you in the room. Stuff like that scares me.

    The odds of being knocked over and injured/killed whilst crossing the road are also pretty scary. Stepping out of your own front door is risky and there are loads of situations inside your home which can kill you, The trick is not to get so tangled up with the stats on what happens to other people, that it affects how you live your life.

    Yeah I can see that because obviously it's new people you're meeting and you don't truly know them, but I can vouch that loughborough campus security are amazing and always on hand pretty much all the time and are very efficient on nights out. Nottingham is a bit more risky as it's such a big city and very busy but as long as you're careful it should be fine.

    Whenever I have a beer at a house party or on a night out, I put my thumb over the top so nothing can get in. I'll keep a hold of it until I've finished it. With larger glasses, I hold it with my hand over the top.

    You shouldn't be made to feel unsafe in your own city OP.
