A police force has defended forcing criminals to apologise to their victims despite figures suggesting it does not prevent them offending again.

The restorative justice system trialled by Thames Valley Police was criticised after a Home Office report showed it had no effect on reconviction rates.
But the force says this is unfair as the system is still at an early stage.
Officers also believe the process can have a significantly beneficial effect for the victim.
