6 November Radio Live Mark Longley Compere Patterson talks   about November’s White Ribbon campaign, and explains it aims to promote a   message that violence towards women is unacceptable. The father of murdered   teen Emily Longley, Mark Longley, has become an ambassador for White Ribbon   and he comments on the public perspective on domestic violence. Longley says   that the public need to change their attitude and confront others involved in   such violence. Longley talks about the ‘extreme’ behaviour displayed by   Emily’s murderer and former boyfriend Elliott Turner, and explains there were   plenty of people who would have been aware that he was ‘out of control’ that   did not take action. Longley says many believe such people are all ‘hot air’   and would not follow through on their threats. Longley explains he never met   Turner but says his angry behaviour in the weeks leading up to his daughter’s   death was not ‘normal’ and should have been noticed.  Longley explains that White Ribbon prompts   men not to ‘condone, tolerate or remain silent’ about domestic violence.
