Man jailed for murdering ex-partner and her mother

After months of Brexit sucking up all the energy in Westminster, six senior MPs who chair cross-party committees warned Theresa May at the weekend that the prolonged arguments over Brexit are having a “serious detrimental effect” on wider domestic policy.

Among the many vital bills being delayed is one on domestic abuse, which will enshrine in law a definition of the offence. In Birmingham today, a man has been given a life sentence after pleading guilty to murdering his ex-partner and her mother.
