Prisoners to launch legal action on voting rights

Former inmate asks lawyers to start proceedings for compensation after prime minister said he would not change law

 Prisoners denied the right to vote are to start legal proceedings for compensation immediately in wake of the declaration by David Cameron that he will not change the law despite a ruling by the European court of human rights and the views of his senior law officer Dominic Grieve.
John Hirst, the former prisoner who took the original case, said he had asked his lawyers to start proceedings for compensation in the wake of Cameron's comments last week.
