star this property answer text <p>The law is clear that what is illegal off-line is also illegal on-line and we have robust legislation in place to deal with internet trolls, cyber stalking <br>and harassment. The government brought in new stalking laws in November 2012 which sends a clear message that those responsible for stalking should be brought to justice. This will also help stop people living in fear and prevent escalation to more serious violence. From April 2013 to March 2014, 743 prosecutions were commenced under the new stalking legislation. This is a significant increase from the 67 prosecutions that were commenced from November 2012 to March 2013 and shows that the legislation is taking effect.<br><br>The government continues to work in collaboration with the College of Policing, the National Policing Lead on Stalking, and the Crown Prosecution Service, amongst others, to further raise awareness of the legislation and promote training to ensure these offences are tackled effectively. In July 2013 the Crown Prosecution Service published guidelines for prosecutors on the approach they should take in cases involving communications sent via social media. The College of Policing also wrote to all Chief Officers in July 2013 with advice on tackling online abuse.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

Basing UK immigration controls in France enables Border Force to stop illegal migrants before they reach our shores. <br><br>Since 2010, this Government has invested millions in strengthening the security of our border in Calais and at other key ports. We have bolstered physical security in Calais, upgraded technology and equipment and increased joint intelligence work with the French.<br><br>The Home Secretary and French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve recently reaffirmed their commitment to further joint action at Calais, including a £12 million contribution from the UK Government towards bolstering security and infrastructure. <br><br>The priority now is to implement the practical solutions that have been agreed. Work has started on installing the security fences we provided and should be completed over the coming weeks. This will build on the sustained UK support and investment in improving physical security and upgrading technology at Calais. <br><br>We are also working to deliver longer term solutions. This includes improving the infrastructure and flow of traffic at Calais in order to reduce the risk of queuing vehicles on the approach roads which are targeted by migrants.<br><br>But we recognise that the problem does not begin in Calais. That is why we are enhancing joint work with France and other European partners to clamp down on the organised crime groups behind people smuggling. This is in addition to broader work with European and International partners to address the wider problem of illegal migration, of which Calais is just one visible sign.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
