Essex Police has been told it must do more to protect women from abusive partners.
It follows strong criticism of the way the force handled three cases, in which women died. Maria Stubbings, Christine Chambers and Jeanette Goodwin were all murdered by their ex-partners.
Essex Police says it is committed to helping victims of domestic abuse and acknowledges that more needs to be done to streamline processes and improve communication.
