Sussex Police says it's commissioned three reviews into way it handled the case of killer Robert Trigg.
The 52 year old is beginning a life sentence for the murder of one of his former partners and the manslaughter of another.
Trigg was convicted only after the family of Susan Nicholson launched their own investigation.
They say they want a truly independent review of what went wrong, as Malcolm Shaw reports.
