Anonymity in the press

Can someone explain why in this high profile recent case regarding sexual assault (see - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/devon/8093490.stm) the woman has been named (even though she has only been 'charged'). But, in the case of Baby P the culprits identities were kept anonymous? I genuinely don't understand it.





The offenders in the Baby P case were not named so that Baby P's identity was protected. By naming the woman in this case there are no children who are directly involved who would be identified.
