Calls to a helpline for victims of sexual and domestic violence soared after the daughters of paedophile David Tweed waived their anonymity to go public about their ordeal.

Nexus said there was a spike in calls and online contact after Amanda Brown and her sisters bravely spoke about the abuse they suffered at the hands of the former Ireland rugby international, who died in a motorbike crash in October.
