Clare's Law introduced to tackle domestic violence

8 March 2014 Last updated at 09:56 GMT

A scheme to let people find out from police if their partner has a history of domestic violence has been rolled out across England and Wales.

Known as Clare's Law, it is intended to provide information that could protect someone from being a victim of an attack.

The initiative is named after 36-year-old Clare Wood who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend in 2009. She was unaware of his history of violence against women.

Daniel Boettcher reports.
