'Alarm bells started ringing'

The Metropolitan Police is launching a review of all ongoing sex crime investigations, after the collapse of two rape cases in a week.

Jerry Hayes, who was the barrister prosecuting the case against Liam Allan, told the Today programme the late disclosure of evidence is a very "worrying, systemic problem".
