Essex Police have been criticised by the IPCC for failing to protect a woman murdered by her ex-partner.

Maria Stubbings, who was 50, was strangled by her ex-partner at her home in Chelmsford in December 2008.

Maria's family are now calling for a public inquiry. You can see their campaign called "In Maria's name" at the Refuge website http://www.refuge.org.uk

Her brother Manuel Fernadez spoke to ITV News Anglia and we began by asking him if he had faith in the police force.
