Bulger killer Jon Venables’ recall reasons stay secret

The reason why one of James Bulger’s killers is back in prison will not be revealed, the Justice Secretary Jack Straw has said.

Mr Straw said divulging the reason why Jon Venables was returned to prison was not in the “interests of justice”.

The 27-year-old was released on life licence in 2001, having been jailed for the 1993 murder of two-year-old James on Merseyside.
