Stalking must be a crime, Labour's Yvette Cooper says

Labour is calling for stalking to be made a specific criminal offence in England and Wales.

The Shadow Home Secretary, Yvette Cooper, says a lack of clarity in the law has allowed stalking cases to escalate into more serious crimes.

Scotland introduced a separate offence of stalking last year.
