Over a third of women who reported domestic violence to the Gardaí last year found them 'unhelpful'.

Women's Aid has released its annual figures today and says Garda responses ranged from very negative to very positive.

The organisation had more than 19,000 disclosures of abuse against women and children in 2017.

Women's Aid Director, Margaret Martin, says separation from an abusive partner doesn't always mean safety.
