Interesting Fact - Law

Clare's Law is aimed at protecting women (and men) from violent abuse by their partners.

(The Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme means that police can disclose previous convictions for violence, even if a person has not requested it.

It is called Clare's Law after Clare Wood, who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend.  It was revealed after his trial that he had a horrific history of violence against women. Miss Woods’ father Michael Brown campaigned for a change in the law.)

!Note - According to The Wright Stuff, 400 people investigated a partner during the pilot scheme.
