35 Domestic Abuse Crimes Recorded Every Day In Essex
Figures obtained by Heart show there are 35 domestic abuse crimes a day happening in Essex.
In Essex 13,000 crimes were recorded last year - and that's a total that's risen sharply over the last 5 years.
Heart spoke to Sheridan from Essex who met her partner well over 10 years ago she said at first he was charming, and did his very best to 'woo' her.
For years she didn't think of herself as a victim because she didn't understand the many forms off domestic abuse.
She was able to escape thanks to the charity Refuge which looked after her and her children.
Essex police say they treat domestic abuse very seriusly, and have been training officers and issuing hundreds of body cams to tackle it.

Drivers in Essex are being urged to slow down when it's raining - after 5 deaths and 69 serious injuries on the county's roads in the last year.
A new service is now available in Essex, providing a single point of contact for victims and survivors of sexual violence and child sexual abuse.
More than 100 people have lost their lives through suicide in prisons in England and Wales so far this year - nine at Chelmsford Prison.
