Concern over child killer's 'unsupervised days out'

Calum McKenzie

BBC News

An MP has raised concerns over the release from prison of double child killer Colin Pitchfork.

Pitchfork, who raped and murdered 15-year-old schoolgirls Lynda Mann and Dawn Ashworth in 1983 and 1986 in Leicestershire, has been allowed out of prison under escort.

He's also been pictured on an unsupervised visit to Bristol.

Alberto Costa, MP for South Leicestershire, said he wanted assurances from the Ministry of Justice that his constituents were safe.

In response, justice secretary David Gauke told the Commons that the victim's families had been consulted.

Two cross-county constituencies have been proposed in the East Midlands, under the latest proposed boundary changes.

Some of the southern parts of the current Rushcliffe constituency would combine with Loughborough, to create a new Loughborough and South Rushcliffe seat.

Further south, some of the current South Leicestershire seat would become part of a new Daventry and Lutterworth constituency.

In Derbyshire and Derby, a new North East Derbyshire constituency will be created that is in line with its local authority of the same name, and there will be a Bolsover constituency containing the entirety of Bolsover District.

There are no proposed changes to the Bassetlaw, High Peak, Leicester East, Leicester South, North West Leicestershire and Mansfield seats - but all the rest face some minor tweaks which you can see here.
