Baroness Newlove: Crime 'not someone else's problem'

''Communities champion'' Baroness Newlove has said residents should be able to set the speed limit on local roads as part of measures to tackle crime.

In a report on tackling neighbourhood crime, Baroness Newlove suggests volunteers should be given speed guns.

The peer, whose husband Garry was murdered by a gang of teenagers in 2007 in Warrington, said crime should not be seen as ''someone else's problem''.

The BBC's Danny Savage reports.
