Police in Cornwall are dealing with a rising number of reports about domestic abuse.

There were more than 150 across the end of December and New Year.

There were twelve on Christmas Day alone.

Chief Superintendent Julie Fielding says it is a top priority.

She says a rise in cases can sometimes mean more victims are speaking out.

She said: "With each of these cases there is a victim, there is a family that is affected, so we take positive action, and we have seen an increase in reports of domestic abuse which we see as a positive sign.

"Reducing crime and harm are really important, the two are interlinked, particularly when we talk about safeguarding, we have mapped across Cornwall with partners the different types of harm, whether that is domestic abuse, anti-social behaviour, alcohol, mental health, so that we have a really clear understanding of the needs of the community."
