Suffolk: Teen Domestic Abuse Lessons

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

It's after concerns that more are putting up with violent and controlling behaviour from boyfriends and girlfriends.

Research shows young people are more tolerant of abuse in relationships and police figures show it's affecting more 17 to 24 year olds.

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.
