/* My bits are protected, are yours?*/
Dear Dave, how many criminals may be soon be living in YOUR street?Ministers today released the postcodes of residential streets where thousands of criminals are being held in bail hostels.
The Ministry of Justice has been repeatedly criticised for paying private firm ClearSprings millions to house the convicts on early release and suspects awaiting trial in residential homes to ease prison overcrowding.
They are free to come and go with only limited supervision.
Neighbours are only told about the hostels by letter once they have been given the go-ahead and many in nearby streets do not realise they are there.
But, following pressure to reveal the locations, the Government has published a list of postcode areas, but stopped short of revealing precise street names.
The probation officers' union Napo said there were 'minimal' checks on those staying in the hostels and called for closer supervision of their behaviour.
And these are the postcodes so check yours NOW!
