Bid to tackle levels of domestic abuse; NEWS IN BRIEF.

A CAMPAIGN to tackle the increased levels of domestic abuse that occur around the time of major sporting events such as the Six Nations rugby tournament has been launched.

The publicity campaign, launched by Minister for Communities and Local Government Carl Sargeant, includes advertising on local radio stations and posters on trains and buses. It promotes an anti-violence message and highlights the All Wales Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Helpline.

A similar campaign ran during last year's Six Nations tournament, when there were more than 4,300 calls to the helpline - an increase of almost 10% on the previous year.

Anyone affected by domestic abuse in Wales can call the All Wales Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Helpline on 0808 80 10 800 for confidential, bilingual, 24-hour information and advice. In an emergency, dial 999.
