The head of the Crown Prosecution Service has said a new scheme allowing victims of crime to appeal if a suspect is not prosecuted would reassure victims that justice is being done.
Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders told Radio 4's Today programme: "What we would like is for victims to be reassured that we don't routinely get cases wrong. Where we do get it wrong, we will look at them again and they can challenge it."
"So it gives them a tremendous sense of empowerment," she added.
