Launch of domestic abuse campaign

Lothian and Borders police have launched a campaign to help victims of domestic violence.

As part of the campaign, tickets issued on buses in the area will contain contact details for the Domestic Abuse Helpline, a support charity for people affected by domestic abuse.

Assistant Chief Constable Graham Sinclair from Lothian and Borders Police said: "People often think domestic abuse is purely about physical violence, however many people suffer years of verbal and emotional abuse which is just as damaging.

"Domestic abuse saps the confidence of victims and leaves them in a constant state of fear and anxiety. As such, it is vastly under-reported, and although more than 7,700 incidents were reported across Scotland last year, we believe this is only a fraction of the true amount.

"For women suffering domestic abuse, taking the bus this weekend could be the first step on a much more important journey.”
