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.
