DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: Bucks County Council cabiinet has agreed 10 recommendations to better address domestic violence and abuse across the county.

Cabinet member Martin Phillips said: “You can’t ignore domestic violence and abuse and pretend it’s not happening. Across Bucks over 6,000 incidents were reported to the police in 2010/11, although the Home Office estimates the true extent could be nearly three times this figure.”
