A law which allows people to find out if their partners have a history of domestic violence will go live across the Northumbria force area from today.
Clare's Law is named after Clare Wood, who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend George Appleton at her home in Salford in 2009.
She had met Appleton on Facebook, unaware of his history of violence against women.
The scheme was piloted in Greater Manchester and is now being extended across the country.
