Hairdressers Trained By West Midlands To Spot Domestic Abuse
West Midlands Police have been working with hairdressers to train them how to spot the signs of domestic abuse.
The pilot scheme is taking place in Wolverhampton which has seen a 38% increase in the number of domestic violence crimes being reported.
Chief Inspector Michaela Kerr has told Heart what they're asking hairdressers to look out for:
It's hoped it'll encourage more victims to get the help they need and come forward and report the crimes.
A former Birmingham police officer has been found guilty of 40 sex offences against children as young as 8, despite two previous failed investigations into his abuse.
Police have found hammers, replica guns and knives as they search parks and outside flats in the West Midlands.
A Birmingham copyright law expert has told Heart it'll be hard to prove Little Mix's new single directly copies a song by an American girlband.
