    Berkshire Women's Aid has reported a steep rise in cases of families "fleeing to refuge", which it said was due to the coronavirus outbreak.

    The charity said it had as many referrals on Tuesday as would normally happen in a week.

    Writing on Facebook, it said: "This crisis is putting people at real increased risk."

    The charity said it was running short of bedding and has appealed for donations of quilts, pillows and other household items.
