UK police warned before the killing of nine women | BBC Newsnight

West Yorkshire Police knew of nine women who had fears for their safety before they were killed by a man they knew, BBC Newsnight has found.

In two of the killings, the police did not conduct proper risk assessments when the women had reported domestic abuse to the force.

The police said it has “implemented recommendations” and provided domestic abuse training to staff since the deaths of the women.
