In July, the Suzy Lamplugh Trust was involved in a podcast ‘Should I Delete That?’, with Gloucestershire Constabulary. Presented by Alex Light and Em Clarkson, the podcast has more than 2.5 million downloads and deals with polarising conversations, talking to experts and tackling shame.

This episode, ‘Stalking: How romantic comedies have deceived us’, highlights Gloucestershire Constabulary’s campaign around stalking, where we hear from a victim of stalking who bravely spoke about her experience of being stalked and the impact that the behaviours had on her. The podcast explores how the friends and family of victims can help, as well as what to expect from the police response.

Sarah-Louise, Head of Operations at the Suzy Lamplugh Trust said “Stalking is a psychological crime that can have a profound and long-lasting impact on the victim. It is crucial that more is done to support victims when they need it the most. If you, or someone you know, has been a victim of stalking, you can get in touch with the National Stalking Helpline at 0808 802 0300.”
