Man Who Suffered Serious Beating From His Wife For 12 Years Sets Up Camera To Film Her.

An abused husband set up a secret camera to film his drunken wife attacking him up because he didn’t think police would believe him. Neil Tweedy, 45, endured up to 12 years of violence at the hands of school teacher spouse Helen, including an assault on their wedding night in which she smothered him with a duvet and forced him to sleep on the sofa.

But for years Mr Tweedy believed his binge-drinking wife, also 45, would change and failed to report the attacks to authorities.

He eventually took action after the couple had a child and she continued with her abusive behaviour towards him.

Unbeknown to his wife, he installed a hidden camera at the couple’s £200,000 semi detached in Stretford, Greater Manchester and, for a two-month period, filmed Mrs Tweedy slapping him and swearing at him – once in front of their daughter, now four.

After three incidents, he feared the attacks were escalating and handed over the footage to police.

Mrs Tweedy admitted three charges of common assault by beating at Manchester Magistrates Court and was issued with a restraining order banning her from contacting her husband.

But Mr Tweedy defended his wife’s actions outside court, saying: ‘Helen is a fantastic and brilliant teacher and gets to work for 7.30am and doesn’t leave till 7.30pm. She’s just so hard working. ‘I don’t support the restraining order as it will make access between her and our child difficult. ‘We can’t be amicable because of the restraining order but if there wasn’t one in place then I’m sure we would be.’

He added: ‘The problem was just alcohol, she was admitted to hospital twice in the past year and could have died.

‘Something had to change. It’s not the kind of problem where she wakes up needing alcohol it’s just the binge drinking at weekends that’s caused this. ‘Hopefully now she can get the help she needs.’
