It has been a tense few months for listeners to BBC Radio 4's soap Archers, awaiting the verdict of the jury in Helen Titchener's trial, accused of attempting to murder her husband.

The story has highlighted the relatively new law against coercive or controlling behaviour in relationships, which was a long overdue addition to the law covering domestic abuse.

It is great to see the Archers continuing to cover and raise up to date stories/issues, particularly those affecting rural communities.
