Today we are proud and sad. Proud for Hughes - that a 17-year-old stood up and said I don't think this is right and took it to court - and proud that so many people's hard work has gone into changing the law.Sad for the terrible loss of the families.
Our pressing concern is how this protection can be implemented to protect 17-year-olds from today.
We have asked the Home Secretary to issue immediate guidance to police forces around the country before she begins her consultation.
We would be happy to assist in the drafting of this. We are of course anxious to make sure another tragedy doesn't happen in the interim.
