Police bail time limit for suspects considered
Home Secretary Theresa May has asked the College of Policing to consider implementing a time limit for police bail.
She said limits could be put on the length of time a suspect was allowed to be held on bail in England and Wales.
This follows the cases of Paul Gambaccini, Jim Davidson and Freddie Starr - all of whom were on bail for months before learning they faced no action.
