The programme is aiming to raise money for charitable organisations including Refuge, Women's Aid and the Independent Domestic Violence Advisors (IDVAs), who all receive funding from Sport Relief.

The film makers wanted to show how the force investigate the complexities of domestic abuse cases and show the level of demand it puts on the organisation.

They spoke to a range of officers across the force, from response to Chief Inspectors, to discuss their experiences dealing with domestic abuse.

Chief Inspector Dan Middleton said: 'It was a great privilege for the Constabulary to take part in the making of this short film that will be aired nationally during this year's BBC Sport Relief programming.
