Criminal justice system 'in trouble'

What will the criminal justice system look like in the coming age of austerity? The question is the focus of a conference being held today at King's College, London, which will publish a series of letters from academics addressed to "an incoming minister..." on what should happen to the criminal justice system.

Fergus McNeill, Professor of Criminology and Social Work at Glasgow University and who wrote one of the letters, discusses his concerns for the future of the criminal justice system.
