‘Clare’s Law’ to give people right to find out details of partner’s past from police

North of England Correspondent

Tomorrow, Ministers will be bringing forward long-delayed proposals to tackle domestic violence in England and Wales. The draft bill will make it easier to prosecute both physical and emotional domestic abusers. It will also give legal backing to Clare’s Law which gives people a right to find out details of their partner’s past from the police. It’s named after Clare Wood, who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend in 2009.

Just to warn you, this report from our North of England Correspondent Clare Fallon contains some very distressing details.
