Suffolk: Teen Domestic Abuse Lessons

23 November 2012, 06:00

Teenagers across Suffolk are going to be learning about domestic abuse in schools.

Shirley Osbourne is from Suffolk County Council's domestic abuse team and talks to Heart's Hannah Griffiths about why they are choosing to talk to teenagers about domestic abuse.
