WOMEN will get the right to check a partner’s background under a new domestic violence law.

Clare’s Law — named after a mum murdered by her ex-boyfriend — is a victory for the Sun on Sunday.

Theresa May tomorrow unveils the change, which also applies to abused men, as part of a raft of legal reforms.

It is named after Clare Wood, 36, of Salford, who was strangled and set on fire by George Appleton, 40, after meeting him on Facebook.

She had no idea he had earlier been jailed for three years for harassing another woman.

The new offences include “economic abuse” aimed at those who use money or access to a car to control their partner.

They also provide support for victims and the appointment of a domestic abuse commissioner.

The PM believes they “leave no stone unturned” in protecting an estimated two million victims.

Mrs May said last night: “I’ve worked to bring an end to domestic abuse.”
