An advertising campaign is being launched to raise awareness of domestic violence in teenage relationships

The adverts will target boys and girls aged 13 to 18, urging them not to use violence against their girlfriends. The £2m TV, radio, internet and poster campaign is part of a government strategy announced last year to reduce violence against women and girls.

Home Secretary Alan Johnson said it was essential to change attitudes in order to stop abuse against females.
He said: "We want to see young people in safe and happy relationships and this means tackling attitudes towards abuse at an early age, before patterns of violence can occur.
