The Crown Prosecution Service had conducted a preliminary review into this case that has highlighted the need for further investigation as there appear to be failings in relation to decision-making and case progression. Once this has been completed, the Director of Public Prosecutions will conduct a detailed review to ensure lessons can be learnt from this case.

I have asked the DPP to inform me of the outcome of her review, and I will write to the hon. Member when it has been completed.
