A campaign to secure prisoners the right to vote has been launched.

Supporters from the three main political parties are backing calls for a review of a 135-year-old law which bars offenders from elections.
They argue that a ban does nothing to deter prisoners from crime and that voting is an "inalienable human right".
But opponents say those excluded from society should not have a say over the way it is governed.
