Home Office in the media

Today's Home Office related stories include a report from Victims' Commissioner Baroness Newlove on anti-social behaviour.

Anti-social behaviour

The Times, Sun, Mail, Express and Telegraph, which splashes on this story, all cover the report from the Victims’ Commissioner Baroness Newlove. The report is critical of a number of organisations for dismissing anti-social behaviour.

This is Baroness Newlove's final report before stepping down and she says anti-social behaviour is getting worse, and that little has changed during her tenure. The Local Government Authority says councils take anti-social behaviour "extremely seriously".

A Government spokesperson said:

We welcome the Victims’ Commissioner’s latest report on anti-social behaviour and will consider the recommendations carefully.

The Government is committed to tackling anti-social behaviour and ensuring victims get the response they deserve.

That is why we reformed powers available to the police, local authorities and others to tackle anti-social behaviour and continue to keep them under review.
