Domestic abuse victims urged to speak out, as Evening News and Norfolk police launch campaign
The Evening News will tomorrow launch a campaign working with Norfolk police to help victims break the cycle of domestic abuse.
Norfolk police receives thousands of reports of domestic violence each year but it is thought there are thousands more who feel unable to seek help.
Throughout the week the Evening News will reporting on the cases of abusers and their victims.
We will be speaking to one woman about her 12-year ordeal at the hands of her bullying husband. Reporters will also be covering the cases of abusive partners who appear before the courts.
Each day there will be a special report highlighting the work of police to encourage victims to come forward and the help that is available.
We will be publishing a business-card size guide explaining how to seek help which victims can cut out and store discretely.
