She's loud, and she's proud. Nothing -- not the cops, not a judge's order and certainly not her neighbors' complaints -- will stop Caroline Cartwright of Britain from screaming her head off during sex, the year-old woman proclaims in a new documentary about people slapped with an Anti-Social Behavior Order. Cartwright got hers from a judge in and she continues to defy it, she proudly claims. The police have been called to her Sunderland home more than 30 times, she has been given two suspended jail sentences and she has violated a noise abatement order five times. Caroline and her husband, Steve, have already broken an iron headboard in their raucous lovemaking sessions.

I 've been a police officer for two decades and a detective, specialising in serious crime and sexual offences, for 15 years. Never once in all the time I've investigated these horrific crimes has it occurred to me that one day I would be a victim; that I would be raped — and that I would refuse to help the police investigate.

I'm still struggling to come to terms with how, despite my decades of professional experience, I made the choices that led to me being raped.
