Nick Barnard discusses pre-charge bail on BBC Two, Victoria Derbyshire

Associate Nick Barnard discusses the new 28-day limit placed on pre-charge bail on BBC Two, Victoria Derbyshire.

Since its introduction in its present form in the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984, pre-charge bail (or police bail) has been a valuable tool for the police during the preliminary stages of a criminal investigation. However, following previous abuses of the power, long-overdue changes to the law are now in force and will make it more difficult for the police to use bail in lengthy investigations.
