Women warned over the violent past of their men
MORE than 40 women have applied for information on their partners in Notts under a new law which aims to prevent domestic abuse.
Clare's Law was introduced as a 12-month pilot scheme in Notts in September.
It allows police to tell people about their partner's violent past in situations where it could help protect them from harm.
Out of the 44 applications made, police disclosed information about previous convictions to five women. Four of them were in relationships with the person and one disclosure was made to a third party who could protect the potential victim.

Superintendent Helen Chamberlain said: "A police force's primary job is to preserve life and keep people safe, and arming people with the information to protect themselves is one of many tactics we will use to do just that."
The law is named after Clare Wood, whose former partner murdered her in 2009. He had three convictions for violence.
