Stated in Ask The Police UK the only self defense you can use in UK is rape alarm, People can now forget about standing their ground, because if they live in the UK and they are about to be attacked, the only thing that they can do is run away. The first thing that the government has done is banned a variety of sexual acts, and now they are forcing people to not fight back and become victims. Now, if you are attacked in the United Kingdom, all that you can do is run away, as you may be just as guilty as the criminal if you try to defend yourself. Criminals are empowered under this law and innocent people have their basic right of self protection taken away. The only proper way for anybody to defend themselves now is by using an alarm that will notify the police but otherwise do nothing else in defense of the individual during the crime.
