Cleveland Police Commissioner supports Teesside domestic abuse campaign

Four events will be held across the Teesside area to raise the profile of the campaign to support more victims of domestic abuse and violence.

The campaign, which is being launched on International Women's Day, has the support of Cleveland's Police and Crime Commissioner.

Barry Coppinger says despite funding cuts, tackling abuse remains a top priority.
