The Director of Public Prosecutions has said she is "incredibly proud" of the rise in the conviction rate for domestic violence in recent years.
Alison Saunders said: "I hope victims of these terrible offences will take some confidence from this, and that perpetrators will take note."
She said she was pleased so many cases were now settled by offenders pleading guilty, meaning "the vast majority of victims are spared having to give evidence in court".
She also hailed the high conviction rate for offences involving women and girls, saying: ""I am incredibly proud of what the CPS has achieved in recent years in tackling violence against women and girls."
