Following the sentencing of Valdo Calocone on Thursday 25 January, I have asked HM Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate (HMCSPI) to undertake a thorough and rapid inspection of the CPS actions in this case.

The independent Inspection will address the concerns raised by the victims’ families about the charging decision and the approach taken by the CPS in engaging with the families.

I have made this reference to HMCPSI under section 2(1)(b) of the Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate Act 2000.

HMCPSI will report to me before Easter, so that any lessons to be learned can be rapidly implemented.
