Domestic violence workers in Cornwall say there has been a 'significant improvement' in help for victims.

It comes after Pirate FM told you about the report that warned police are not always assessing cases properly.

That is prompting fears some may slip through the net.

Devon and Cornwall Police insist they are putting in more resources, despite cuts.

Sally Piper heads up support charity Skoodyha: "If we're not doing that risk assessment well and consistently well then actually there's the potential, and I don't want to frighten anybody, but there's potential for someone living at high risk but not being identified as that and therefore the right level of support not being put in place.

"What we need to make sure is that everybody is doing that on a consistent basis - so the police and all the other professionals. There is a big training programme going on at the moment and so hopefully that will improve the way that we do those risk assessments."
