Cambridgeshire Police shared the frightening statistic to their Facebook page while urging any victims to come forward.

In a post on Sunday, January 28, a spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Police said: "Since the beginning of this week, we have received 57 calls about domestic abuse where we have believed someone is in immediate danger.

"Domestic abuse affects people from all walks of life and in many different ways - it can be any incident of controlling, coercive or threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are or have been intimate partners or family members, regardless of their gender or sexuality.

"Domestic abuse is never justified. If you or someone you know is suffering, we are here to help."
