PRIME Minister David Cameron has told the Commons there will be changes to bail laws following a campaign by the family of murdered Blackpool nurse Jane Clough.

Jane, 26, was stabbed to death by her ex-partner Jonathan Vass in July 2010. He was on bail accused of raping her.

Her family have campaigned for a change in the law since the murder.

Mr Cameron told the House of Commons that there was “a strong case for changing the law” and that an amendment would be made.

The Gazette signed up to the Justice for Jane campaign last year and helped John and Penny Clough gather supporters to back their cause.

So far almost 15,000 people have signed a petition demanding a change in the law, click here to support the campaign.
