ORILLIA, Ont. -- Ontario Provincial Police say they will be reviewing approximately 4,000 sexual assault investigation reports that were designated as "unfounded."

Commissioner Vince Hawkes says the review will cover allegations made between 2010 and 2014.

The announcement follows a report by the Globe and Mail that the newspaper says exposed deep flaws in the way investigators treat sexual assault allegations.
