So disheartening to see police fail at one of their basic functions here. We need more visibility on these issues, unfortunately.
Wife raped by husband' crowdfunds case against Met Police after it halts inquiry
The woman, using the alias Emma to protect her anonymity, claims her husband continued to have sex with her against her will and when she told him it felt like rape.
She spoke to Met officers in June 2021, but says the investigation was halted without her husband or potential witnesses being interviewed, and without the analysis of phone evidence.

She says police were called to their home several times and domestic abuse risk assessments were carried out.
During one interview with police, she says she told officers she feared for her life and accused her husband of punching her in the stomach while she was pregnant.
