An interesting week with perhaps the most significant event the court decision that the Met Police are liable for a poor quality investigation into the serial rapist John Worboys. This decision opens the door to all victims of serious crimes where investigations were unsatisfactory.
The Justice Committee also opened its inquiry into the disclosure of evidence in criminal cases.
There was also a sprinkling of good news with the prison population falling slowly, two positive prison inspection reports and an excellent new digital resource for prison visiting from PACT.
Finally, indefatigable Probation Chief Inspector Dame Glenys Stacey is taking on an inquiry into the post-Brexit farming inspection regime alongside leading HMI Probation.
As usual, just click on the tile for the full story.
