#Archers – the trial begins. #freehelen

As previously reported The long-running radio drama the Archers has a domestic abuse related story line.

Helen faces charges of attempted murder and wounding with intent after stabbing her husband Rob. The stabbing in April was the culmination of a long-running domestic abuse storyline.

The trial, which runs all this week, is even being covered by a court artist. Read more here.

Although fictional the story is, of course, based on real life experiences and highlights the issue of domestic abuse in more affluent, rural settings.

If you or someone you know is affected by domestic violence and abuse please visit for information about local support services.

In an emergency, please dial 999.
