“They  must urgently convene a national working group comprising police, service providers, funders, the Domestic Abuse Commissioner and National Victims Commissioner to introduce extra support and funding for victims of domestic abuse during the current crisis.

“The safety of all Londoners is my number- one priority and there is zero tolerance towards all forms of domestic abuse in our city. “
