Police Minister Nick Herbert to announce criminal justice plans‎

Criminals could be dealt with in days or hours under plans to introduce "swift and sure justice" and flexible court hours, ministers are to reveal.

Police Minister Nick Herbert will publish a White Paper proposing more court video links and tougher community sentences in England and Wales.

Neighbourhood justice panels will see local people decide how offenders should make amends for low level crime.
