Yvette Cooper calls for rapid response over bail ruling

Police are urgently reviewing the cases of thousands of suspects after a court ruling restricted their powers to bail them for further questioning.

The ruling, in a case involving Greater Manchester Police, means that suspects can be released on police bail for no more than 96 hours.

Shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper urged the government to take urgent action as thousands of investigations could be jeopardised.
