Victim of stalking tells her story to warn others

It's believed one in five women, and one in 12 men - will be stalked in their lifetime. Yet stalking is a crime rarely reported to the police.

This week singer Lily Allen spoke of her experiences after a stalker broke into her home and threatened to kill her. She says the police did little to help.
