Victim's brother criticises Straw; uk newsbulletin.

THE brother of a man murdered by fugitive former royal aide Jane Andrews said yesterday that Jack Straw should consider resigning after she fled an open prison.

Rick Cressman, 58, said it was due to "complete and utter incompetence" in the Justice Secretary's department that Andrews was at large.

He insisted she should have been in a higher security prison for bludgeoning and stabbing his brother Tom Cressman after he refused to marry her.

Andrews, 42, the Duchess of York's former dresser, failed to return to East Sutton Park prison near Maidstone, Kent, on Sunday night.

She was moved there on November 18 and took an overdose last week for which she needed hospital treatment.
