Greater Manchester Police logs 775 LGBT domestic violence reports

Last week, the BBC reported that nearly 800 reports of domestic violence within Greater Manchester's LGBT community were recorded by police during the last 12 months. In April 2017 Greater Manchester Police (GMP) became the first force in the UK to specifically record such abuse, and have logged 775 cases. Baroness Beverley Hughes, deputy mayor for policing, said GMP now has a "clearer picture" of the abuse.
