The law has been changed after a Little Gaddesden pensioner was murdered by a prisoner on day release to try and prevent something like that from ever happening again.

Ian McLoughlin – free from prison for the first time in 21 years – travelled to the Nettleden Road home of convicted paedophile Francis Cory-Wright, then 87, to rob him.

But after neighbour Graham Buck intervened, McLoughlin – who had killed twice before – slit the 66-year-old’s throat.
