David Cameron has laid out his vision for criminal justice, insisting criminals can be punished and rehabilitated at the same time.

In a speech in London, he said the debate on crime and punishment had become too "black or white".

The prime minister said it was right for serious offenders to be imprisoned, but that "just being tough isn't a successful strategy in itself".
