Home Intruders/Self Defence

Asked about Sir John Steven’s recent comments about homeowners confronting intruders, the PMOS said the important thing was that people recognised the law allowed reasonable force to be used. What it did not allow was active retaliation, which seemed to be a point that people missed. The PMOS added that there was a murder review going on in the Home Office at the moment, which would be part of the issues discussed. The PMOS said it was important people knew what the distinctions were, as there was some confusion around.
