The study by Victoria Walks, of more than 1000 people aged between 15 and 20 found personal safety concerns stop women walking after dark.

Executive Officer of Victoria Walks, Ben Rossiter told Neil Mitchell the results are “disturbing”

“About 40% of young people don’t feel comfortable walking in their neighbourhoods.”
