WAYNE Couzens is the embodiment of evil and must never taste freedom again.

We have no greater punishment than a “whole-life” term which denies the criminal any chance of freedom. The judge must not hesitate to impose it today.
We don’t need another laborious inquiry followed by insincere statements about lessons being learned.
We need an immediate plan from police to end the tide of violence against women and girls and ensure predators like Couzens are caught before they strike.
From the Government there must be no excuses. Just fund it.
