Fears of violence from 'neighbours from hell' and others facing intimidation from criminals who warn 'we know where you live' are to be tackled by home secretary Jack Straw, who this week will publish a year-long study into intimidation of witnesses and crime victims, reported The Observer (p15).

Its 70 recommendations include providing witnesses with escorts to court; arranging for them to be segregated in the court building from defendants and their families; giving them panic alarms that will send messages directly into police stations; and lending them pagers on the day of a hearing to prevent them having to wait before giving evidence.
