Keir Starmer: Call to change Human Rights Act 'a diversion'

Labour's Sir Keir Starmer has criticised Theresa May's announcement she would change human rights laws to tackle terrorism, calling it a diversion.

Sir Keir told the Today programme there was nothing in the laws that get in the way of tackling terrorism.

"The Human Rights Act did not stop me from prosecuting terrorists," he added.
