The Home Secretary has unveiled a review of the controversial stop-and-search powers of police.
Theresa May announced a fresh consultation on the powers to ensure they are being used fairly.
ITV News UK Editor Lucy Manning reports:
Mrs May said that the number of stop-and-search incidents that lead to arrest are "far too low for comfort," telling the House of Commons that more than one million stop-and-searches are recorded every year but on average only about 9% of the incidents result in an arrest.
In addition, Mrs May said statistics show that people from black or ethnic minority backgrounds are up to seven times more likely to be stopped and searched by the police than if they are white.
A teenager who claims to have been stopped and searched "more than 20 times" told ITV News he welcomes the government's decision to review the policy.
Kenny Ladipo, 19, claimed that he had been stopped an "uncountable" amount of times but still backed the controversial powers.
The review has been widely welcomed both by civil liberties groups and police.
