MPs say a ban on identifying people who are arrested for sex offences should be put into place until they're charged.

The Home Affairs Select Committee said suspects deserve the right to anonymity, unless they were charged or police needed to name them.

As it stands, those over 18 years of age are named in many cases before they're convicted, leading people to criticise the existing laws as many are found not guilty.

What do you think?
