Ken Clarke visited Nottingham to speak to staff and offenders about several rehabilitation schemes that stop offenders committing more crime.

On the visit at Nottinghamshire Probation Trust the Justice Secretary met drug misuse offenders who told him about the treatment, training and education they received to stop them offending.

The projects are a good example of best practice and the type of work the Ministry of Justice is looking to take forward within payment by results models that will see the tax payer only paying for what works.
