Revenge Pornography, Disclosure of Private Photographs

Question

1.  Reports of revenge porn (i.e. the offence to "Disclose private sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress") recorded by the police force between 01 April 2015 and 31 March 2016, inclusive.
2. Prosecutions for revenge porn (i.e. the offence to "Disclose private sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress") recorded by the police force between 01 April 2015 and 31 March 2016, inclusive.

3. Convictions for revenge porn (i.e. the offence to "Disclose private sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress") recorded by the police force between 01 April 2015 and 31 March 2016, inclusive.

Clarification received:

I now realise that two of my questions may not be possible to answer, as police forces may not hold prosecution and conviction statistics. 

Could I therefore narrow the request to simply the first of my three questions. I.e.:

"Reports of revenge porn (i.e. the offence to 'Disclose private sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress') recorded by the police force between 01 April 2015 and 31 March 2016, inclusive."

Answer

In the financial year 2015/16, Avon and Somerset Constabulary recorded 72 reports of disclosure of private photographs and films with intent to cause distress.
