A domestic abuse survivor urged victims to seek “advice and support” from others and hopes people will learn from her experience.

Caren O’Braidagh, from Harrow, delivered her ‘Letter to My Younger Self’ in a Metropolitan Police seminar, which she detailed an incident in her 20s which left her hospitalised and requiring life-changing surgery.

“Seek advice, seek support, confide in someone,” she said. “You don’t deserve to be hurt, you don’t deserve to be hit, you don’t deserve to be bullied, abused, made to think you’re nothing.

Landrose Developments was fined £18,820 at Brent Magistrates’ Court for illegally destroying a building in 2016 where protected Pipistrelle bats were known to roost.

The presence of the bats meant that the building could not be demolished without a European Protected Species License and appropriate mitigation in place.

DC Garry Redshaw, who led the investigation, said: “The development company was clearly aware of the bats’ existence but proceeded to destroy their resting place anyway.”
