The crossbow killings prompted Home Secretary Yvette Cooper to urgently consider tougher laws.

A Home Office spokesperson said: "This is an appalling incident and the Home Secretary is being kept updated by the police.

"We keep legislation under constant review and a call for evidence was launched earlier this year to look at whether further controls on crossbows should be introduced.

"The Home Secretary will swiftly consider the findings to see if laws need to be tightened further."
