    A growing number of men are suffering from domestic violence according to latest statistics from the National Centre for Domestic Violence (NCDV), and a legal expert believes cases are still on the rise.

    Research from the NCDV reveals that every third victim of domestic violence is male, and that one in six men will experience it in their lifetime – equating to around four million men in the UK.
    It was also discovered that roughly the same percentage of men as women are victims of severe acts of domestic violence.

    But a legal expert at Marsden Rawsthorn Solicitors, based in Preston and Chorley, is not surprised at the numbers, and has witnessed first-hand the full effect of domestic violence on men.
    Libby Daultrey, associate directorat Marsden Rawsthorn, said: “I have seen increasing numbers of cases where men are the victims of domestic violence, which may be linked to a corresponding increase in cases where female alcohol abuse is a key factor.
