Bodycams are being offered to women at risk of being threatened or stalked by violent ex-partners.

Women Out West (Wow), which helps victims of domestic abuse in West Cumbria, said the cameras would provide evidence and be a deterrent.

Founder Rachel Holliday said there were "too many women who need this protection".

One who had been threatened by a former partner said bodycams would provide her with an "extra layer of reassurance".

The pilot project stemmed from Wow's realisation domestic violence "reduced immensely or stopped altogether" when CCTV was installed in homes.

"We can do this at the victim's home, but what happens when she is out shopping or taking her children to school?" Ms Holliday said.
All that's necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
