Do you agree with lawyers who have criticised the Crown Prosecution Service for pursuing the tv personality Caroline Flack, allegedly ignoring the CPS's own mental health guidance? How can you exert pressure to ensure this does not happen again?

My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Caroline Flack – this is a truly tragic incident.

It is right that the CPS are able to make decisions on cases independent of political pressure. I understand that a post-case review is being undertaken by the CPS, and it is vital that they learn any lessons from this case. It would not be appropriate for me to comment on allegations about which I have had no evidence.
