The number of domestic abuse cases recorded by the police has risen by 10%, according to official figures.

Totals from the Scottish Executive show 43,678 cases in 2004 against almost 39,643 the previous year.
The increase is being attributed to a rise in the reporting of abuse and less tolerance of such violence.
