Police in Oxford are busting the myths around honour-based abuse (HBA) as their Hidden Harm campaign continues.
The force has spent the past two weeks raising awareness of HBA, a crime committed to defend the perceived honour of a family or community.
Between April 2014 and March of this year, officers dealt with 128 HBA-related incidents in Oxford, 52 in Cherwell and West Oxfordshire and 18 in South Oxfordshire and the Vale of White Horse.
During the same period there were a total of 1,200 HBA incidents across the Thames Valley.
Now, Thames Valley Police are dispelling some of the many common misconceptions surrounding the crime.
