Metro Radio Late night phone-in host Alan Robson has saved a woman caller who feared a beat from her partner. He and his team alerted police whilst she was talking to him on the radio. She said she was scared her boyfriend was on his way back to batter her.
According to the article in local paper The Chronicle, the police arrived within seven minutes, when the woman was taken to a refuse while inquiries continued into her claims of domestic violence.
Alan told the paper today: "We did a special programme on domestic violence and protecting victims and children last Thursday. I said then that if any woman needed help she could call me on or off-air and we'd get the support there quickly.
"Last night a woman came on and we contacted police who were around there within seven minutes."
