"Politics now, and the Office for National Statistics has today published the latest crime statistics for England and Wales, which show a marked decrease in the number of crime estimates. The home secretary welcomed the latest figures, saying: 'These statistics prove that while there is some crime in England and Wales there is definitely less crime now than there would have been had there been more crime. It just goes to show that we have had great success in ensuring the underlying trends on crime remain in keeping with changes that have definitely happened since this government came to power.' Now here's Tom with the weather."
