Devizes MP Claire Perry took part in the launch of Football United, a campaign by Women’s Aid to reduce the incidence of domestic violence which shockingly rose by 30 per cent in Britain during the last World Cup.

Clubs across the UK have signed the Football United Club Pledge to send a message to supporters that domestic violence is completely unacceptable.

Mrs Perry met other MPs and representatives from Wiltshire Police at the event in Westminster.

She said: “I am appalled that domestic vioIence incidents rose by 30 per cent four years ago.

"This is completely unacceptable and I am delighted that organisations from across the UK football community have signed the Football United Club Pledge."
