A secret leaked memo revealed 200 bail hostels for dangerous criminals are being opened in residential streets across Britain without any consultation with the public. The Government has signed a multi-million pound contract with a private firm to house a mixture of convicts on early release and suspects who are awaiting trial in a desperate bid to ease prison overcrowding.
They are being placed in homes in residential streets, rather than being held in jail. They are free to come and go, and have only limited supervision. Now leaked papers have revealed the full detail of how they are being forced on local communities without any warning. Shockingly, neighbours are only informed about the plans by letter once the hostels have been given the go-ahead.
Terrorists freed to live in bail hostels - Up to 20 convicted terrorists have been freed from prison to live in bail hostels normally used to house burglars, robbers and sex offenders. The men are living freely in towns and cities across Britain with only limited supervision by probation officers.

Ministers today released the postcodes of residential streets where thousands of criminals are being held in bail hostels.
