An investigation in to how Greater Manchester Police dealt with complaints of domestic violence has found there were 'serious concerns' over protecting victims.

Rania Alayed, Farkhanda Younis and Linzi Ashton all died at the hands of their partners after reporting violence to GMP.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission found a third of officers at the region's biggest force hadn't completed risk assessment training to safeguard victims.

GMP says it is improving its training for control room staff and front-line officers.
