Domestic abuse campaigner wins legal victory

View the fill story, and video, on the ITV website: http://www.itv.com/news/granada/update/2014-03-11/domestic-violence-campaigner-wins-legal-victory/

A woman who survived years of domestic violence has won a victory in her fight to keep victim's addresses secret.

While defending an unrelated civil issue in court, Eve Thomas discovered a legal loop-hole allowing her safe-house address to be made publicly available to her former partner.

She was threatened with jail when she refused to reveal her address to a court - but eventually won the right to keep it confidential.

Now as a result of her campaign her proposals for 'Eve's Law' are to be adopted in a new code of practice.
