The family of Hollie Gazzard, the hairdresser murdered by her ex-boyfriend at the salon where she worked in Gloucester, has called on employers to help identify staff who are victims of domestic violence. Hollie was killed in February 2014, with Asher Maslin later jailed for her murder.

Hollie's father Nick Gazzard has, since her murder, set about tackling abuse in relationships through the trust his family has set up in Hollie's name.

He has now turned his attention to the workplace, with a conference encouraging employers to help staff who may be in an abusive relationship or being stalked.

We've called it "Behind closed doors" because that's what it is at the moment. It is still a taboo subject.

It's an issue of how we treat all our young women and issue of how our relationships should work.

The conference is being supported by Gloucestershire's Police and Crime Commissioner.

This will help reduce crime and raise awareness of a very hidden crime which is behind closed doors, this kind of abuse, domestic violence stalking all happens behind closed doors.

The Hollie Gazzard Trust is planning similar conferences in Wiltshire and the former Avon, and want as many employers as possible to get involved, helping to give a voice to staff who are being abused at home, or in a relationship.
