David Davis warns government over control orders

The government is heading for a "problem on a major scale" if it fails to scrap control orders says former shadow home secretary David Davis.

The orders, part of counter-terrorism legislation introduced in 2005, restrict suspects' freedoms and are being reviewed by the government.

Mr Davis claims that 25 Liberal Democrats, and possibly a similar number of Conservatives, want the orders revoked.
