Prisons 'not working' and need reform claims Ken Clarke

Justice Secretary Ken Clarke has claimed prisons are not working and that he will reform criminal justice policy leading to 3,000 fewer people in jail by 2014.

His ideas have upset some other Conservatives.

Adam Fleming reviewed the party's past views on prisons, and Michael Howard appeared to have a very different view.
