James Bulger's mother Denise Fergus: 'Justice not done'

One of the killers of James Bulger has been jailed for two years after admitting downloading and distributing indecent images of children.

Jon Venables, 27, appeared by video-link at the Old Bailey.

He and Robert Thompson were just 10 when they abducted and murdered two-year-old James in Bootle, Merseyside.

Outside the Old Bailey, Chris Johnson, a spokesman for James Bulger's mother Denise Fergus, said she was disappointed at Venable's sentence.

He said justice had not been done and added that they wanted an investigation into the probation service's handling of the case.
