Kristy Robinson wins £2,350 damages over wrongful arrest

A victim of domestic violence has been awarded £2,350 from Gwent Police after she was arrested when she phoned for help.

Kristy Robinson, 26, dialled 999 at 4am after being punched in the head by her ex-boyfriend and having red wine thrown over her.

But she was taken into custody alongside her attacker because there were no witnesses.

Gwent Police said the officer acted in good faith in a challenging situation.

Miss Robinson spoke to Nelli Bird of BBC Radio Wales.
