Murders linked to probation changes, says Napo

Changes to the way offenders are supervised in England and Wales may have contributed to two murders, says the probation officers' union.

Napo said that in one case a man who killed his partner then himself had been under the supervision of an "overworked" trainee officer.

The Ministry of Justice said it would "robustly" contest the allegations.

Daniel Sandford reports.
