'I couldn't think of a part of my body that didn't hurt' women recall domestic violence experiences
The police made 33 arrests per 100 domestic-abuse related crimes in the year ending March 2020, the same as in the previous year.
The rates of arrest and conviction (which stands at 78 per cent) are higher than ever, but there are still many women out there who are suffering.
Charities like Pandora and Leeway were inundated with calls throughout the national lockdown, as domestic violence rates rocketed.
One survivor Amy* lives in Lynn and has two children with her abuser.
