A Duchy domestic violence charity wins more than a quarter of a million pounds.

The Cornwall Women's Refuge Trust supports 400 victims.

Now it wants to use the Big Lottery cash to build a centre for men.

Amy from St Austell suffered abuse from the age of seven to when she was a teenager: "I was really depressed and down so I kept going back to the doctors thinking what is wrong with me, what is it about me that's making me suddenly not cope. It took about three years for the doctor to ask me whether I'd been a victim of domestic violence.

"When we start questioning domestic violence we actually make it stand out from the ordinary. As the years have gone on it's become normalised in society. We need to question it and we need to actually stand-up for people who are being abused".
