Barrister slams Tory proposals on violence against intruders

A leading barrister has criticised Tory plans to change the law on the level of force householders can use against intruders.

The Tory party want to change the original rule that allows the use of 'reasonable force' in self defence and change it to only prosecuting those who use 'grossly disproportionate violence' against intruders.

A debate between the Shadow Home Secretary Chris Grayling and Michael Wolkind QC,on these proposals, can be viewed here.
