James Bulger murderer Jon Venables returned to prison

One of James Bulger's killers has been returned to prison after he breached the terms of his release.

Jon Venables, 27, is back in jail after being released on life licence in 2001, when he was given a new identity.

In 1993 he was detained with his friend Robert Thompson for the murder of the two-year-old toddler in Bootle, Liverpool.

Daniel Sandford reports.
