Could police have saved Natalie Esack?

Natalie Esack's family have made no complaint about the way Kent Police handled their daughter's case. She was stabbed to death by her estranged husband, and former police detective, Ivan Esack after years of abuse.

However, one leading domestic violence charity believes Natalie's repeated contact with police - four times she told them about her husband's abuse - warranted a stronger response.

Earlier Sangeeta spoke to Julia Dwyer from Refuge and started by asking her what more police could have done.
