A campaigner whose daughter was murdered by an abusive ex-boyfriend has called for a stalkers register where potential victims can check their partner's history.
John Clough, whose daughter Jane was murdered by her violent former lover while he was on bail for rape, claimed that despite new laws stalkers are "getting off with a slap on the wrist" and victims need better protection.
His nurse daughter, 26, was stabbed 71 times as she walked into work by predator Jonathan Vass, who lay in wait for her, and cut her throat at the end of the frenzied attack.
She had ended their relationship and told police that he had raped and beaten her, but he was granted bail while facing nine counts of rape and four of assault and went on to kill.
