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.
