Straw to meet James Bulger's mother

The Justice Secretary, Jack Straw, has said one of the killers of James Bulger was recalled to prison because of what he called "extremely serious allegations". The Sun newspaper says Jon Venables was taken back into custody because he's alleged to have committed a serious sex offence, and government lawyers had threatened to take legal action to prevent it from revealing more details about the claims. Home affairs correspondent, Danny Shaw discusses the reaction to Venables being returned to prison after violating his probation.
