Keir Starmer: Right of review important for crime victims

Victims of crime in England and Wales are being given the right to challenge the Crown Prosecution Service when it decides not to charge a suspect.

Some 70,000 cases a year could be affected by the new ''right to review'' but it will not cover cases dropped by the police.

The Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer, explained why the right of review was ''extremely important'' for victims of crime.
