Lillian Constantine (left) filmed the sexual assault carried out by Bangladeshi takeaway worker Ashraf Miah, 34, as she walked home late at night in the seaside town of Ramsgate, Kent. It is thought to be the first time ever that a victim’s own footage (including the image, right) of an entire attack has helped put a rapist behind bars. It was only because Lillian was using her phone to light the way that she was able to hit the record button. Miah (police mugshot, inset) attacked her beneath a street light that had been turned off by a council to save money. He was jailed last month for 13-and-a-half years and must serve a minimum of nine-and-a-half years.
