A woman whose son was murdered by a convict out on license has criticised suspended sentences for being too soft and compared them to "lines at school".
Caroline Shearer lost her 17-year-old son Jay Whiston after he was stabbed to death at a house party in Essex in October 2012 and now campaigns for tougher sentencing for those carrying a knife.
"At school you used to get lines. You know, it is exactly the same as a suspended sentence - lines."
