Paul Lavelle bled to death after being attacked by his girlfriend with a shard of a broken plate.
His mother and brother spoke to Birmingham Live about how male victims need to break their silence (although the fact that police were called several times during Lavelle’s relationship with his accuser raises a question over whether his silence was to blame or systemic failure on the part of the police?).
They are setting up a charity phoneline to provide guidance and support for male victims. Facebook page: here.
