Ken Clarke joins Victoria

The Justice Secretary Kenneth Clarke QC talks to Victoria, taking calls from listeners about sentencing and prison reform.

He is challenged by a victim of attempted rape, after attempting to justify a change in sentencing policy that could mean some rapists are released from prison after a little over a year.

He also tells Victoria his cabinet colleague Chris Huhne "is in trouble", but he believes Mr Huhne when he says the allegations against him are false.
