Essex Police sorry for 'clumsy' domestic abuse post

Essex Police apologised for offence caused by "clumsy language" in social media posts that appeared to support domestic abuse victims staying with their partners.

Sheila's Story describes how a woman who "knew that the abuse in her relationship was wrong" is given help and support to stay with her husband.

Twitter and Facebook users criticised the "idiotic" posts, with one comment saying: "There's no such thing as staying safe in an abusive relationship".
