The government’s coronavirus rules are tougher on people at risk of domestic abuse, the home secretary says.
Writing in the Mail on Sunday, Priti Patel said current restrictions telling people to stay indoors are even harder for people whose “home is not the safe haven it should be”.
She also told abusers: “You will not get away with your crimes.”
It comes after police warned the new rules make victims more vulnerable.
Campaigners have also warned that elsewhere in the world, domestic abuse has already increased as more people at risk from abuse are forced to stay indoors with their abusers due to the pandemic.
