The Abused - The Abused

Hazel tells her story

It follows their lives in the months following the abuse, as they reflect on the fear and control that stopped them seeking help.

Building a new life is hard for young mum Kelly, though, as her husband continues to harass her, calling constantly and threatening to burn down her house, despite a restraining order.

A tough but important watch.
