Poppy | Domestic abuse

I got attacked by my ex partner and rang 999. It took them an hour to get to me. 3 men came and was nice however they didn’t offer me to stay in my property, they didn’t offer a restraining order and it was dropped due to lack of evidence. Even though I had bruises and was going through a court case. Another let down.
