March in Trowbridge
The 'Walk in White' was organised by Wiltshire Council

A march to raise awareness of domestic abuse has taken place in a town in Wiltshire.

The "Walk in White" through Trowbridge was organised by Wiltshire Council to mark the start of the 12-month "No Excuse for Abuse" campaign.

Maggie Rae, from the council, said: "It is our way of reminding everyone help is available, not to suffer in silence and to have the courage to speak out. "

Wiltshire Police also supported the march by taking part.

Ms Rae continued: "There's no point in us making it safe to walk the streets if people are frightened to go home."
