Clare's Law: Anti-domestic violence pilot a 'success'

Four police forces in England and Wales have been piloting a scheme which means people have been able to find out if their partner has a history of domestic violence.

The charity Victim Support says the trials of the project, known as Clare's Law, have been so successful, they want them to be rolled out nationwide.

The project is named after Clare Wood, who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend who had a record of violence.

Jenny Hill reports.
