Coronavirus: New domestic abuse helpline for Hampshire

A Hampshire charity has set up a new domestic abuse helpline for victims after seeing an increase in calls across the country.

The National Domestic Abuse service has seen a 25% rise in calls since lockdown measures were introduced to combat the coronavirus pandemic.

This prompted Shonagh Dillon, CEO of Portsmouth charity Aurora New Dawn, to set up a new helpline for people in her county.
