8:24am 12th May 2012
Victims of domestic violence are being urged not to suffer in silence, by the Hayle mum blinded by her partner.
33 year old local Shane Jenkin has been jailed for life over the attack on Tina Nash.
She was not allowed to call for help for twelve hours.
In a statement read on her behalf, Tina made this plea:
"Shane was not mentally ill when he attacked me. He was not drunk or under the influence of drugs. It was a silent, prolonged attack.
"I would urge anyone out there suffering domestic abuse to contact the police before it's too late. Don't be frightened or embarrassed. There are specially trained officers who can and will help you."
