West Lothian Council has made an appeal on Social Media for all residents to help protect vulnerable children and adults.
Concerns have been raised that the Corona Virus lockdown will see an increase in stress levels in households that are socially isolating, and that this could give rise to increased threats, emotional and physical, against vulnerable children and adults.
However it is hoped that everyone will play their part to help, and report any concerns to the Council, or for those at immediate risk, to the police.
