Valentines for teachers

Some teachers in the West will be getting a unique Valentine's card on Monday, but it won't be from a secret admirer.

It is actually a new guide on how to spot a child who comes from a home where domestic abuse is happening.

All teachers in North Bristol will be getting one, it will also give them details of who the children should contact for help.

Figures show in 90% of domestic violence incidetns, children are in the same room or next door when it is happening.
