'Bail bandits' commit 10pc of murders.
In the last five years, more than 350 killings were carried out by so-called 'bail bandits'.
It means that more than one violent death a week could have been prevented if the suspect had been locked up instead of being let out.
Despite the worrying scale of serious crime by bailed suspects, ministers are planning a huge rise in the use of bail for suspects.
Thousands more could be released every year before trial in an effort to save millions for the prison service after severe budget cutbacks.
