The number of offenders being returned to prison after being freed on licence has more than trebled in the last five years, says the Prison Reform Trust.

The trust says the "startling" increase is due to conditions attached to release being more strictly enforced.
In 2003-2004, 8,135 offenders were recalled to jail, compared with 2,337 in 2000-2001, it says.
